The user interface with W8 was what turned me off on the whole thing. I feel confident it will turn off administrators who would hesitate to upgrade computers in an enterprise environment. You would have to send every user to school...and triple your IT staff. MS said at first that the classic desktop would be available, but I never found it. Now here comes third party add-ons that will do just that. While that may encourage me to look at W8 again...you have to wonder "WTH was MS thinking?"

The same thing they were thinking when they put in the "Ribbon" interface in Office.
