I'm running W8 on a tablet and on a non-touch laptop I use at home. There was a bit at the start for both my wife (not very technical) and I had to learn new ways of doing things like shutting down apps, getting back to the start screen, switching between apps and getting to the address bar in IE. After that we both find it easy to use. She is mostly surfing the web, I'm both surfing the web and doing some development.
