I hated it at first, but once I figured out some of the mouse commands (seriously, Microsoft, there had BETTER be a tutorial in the RTM version like there was in the past few versions of Windows!), I actually started to like it - it boots up VERY quickly, and seems to be less of a CPU/memory hog than Win7. (Probably since Aero is gone!) And there are some nice features, such as the social hub and the insta-search from the start screen!
As for useful mouse commands:
* Move to lower left and click = bring up start screen
* Move to upper left, then move down = bring up task list
* Move to lower right, then move up (or upper right, then down) = bring up context menu
It is kind of weird, though, that a lot of the mouse commands don't actually require dragging, just MOVING the mouse... especially since with a touchscreen, you'd actually have to drag!
edit: also, WHY is it when I right click something on the start screen, the context menu items appear on the BOTTOM of the screen, where I have to mouse all the way down there to get to them?!
