Because I've toyed with different Linux distributions and desktop environments I looked forward to trying out Windows 8 and seeing what it is like.
When I last walked into a local Costco they had all of their computers upgraded to Windows 8. So I thought I would toy around with it.
I could show and explain Unity in a few minutes to somebody and they would be up-and-running. Seriously, the Unity desktop is a lot easier than Windows 8 and things are more intuitive.
Yes, I only gave Windows 8 a few minutes of my time, but usually I can get the concept or flow of the environment in that time. With Windows 8 I was as lost when I walked away as I was when I walked up to it!
Eventually the "Modern" (formerly known as "Metro") interface will improve to be more evident but for now it is a cluster-%$!
