I've been playing with Windows 8 for a little over 24 hours and so far so good, I'm still getting used to the Metro UI. One thing I do like is the new task manager in Windows 8. You can now see the current state of the processor as it changes speed, if you have your computer configured to use the balanced power options. I also like the new layout and performance graphs. I think I'll give Windows 8 a full month before I decide whether or not to stick with it. I do miss the start button and seriously hope the final version of Windows 8 has the ability to turn off the Metro UI.
