I've read Paul Allen's Windows 8 review: http://www.paulallen.com/TemplateGeneric.aspx?contentId=21
I still cannot reconcile statements like these:
I'm excited about Windows 8 and am confident that existing Windows users will feel the same after they have had a chance to use it.
Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed using Windows 8.
...with stuff like this:
Common capabilities previously available from the old Start menu have been moved elsewhere in Windows 8. For those Windows users who can't live without the Start menu, 3rd party applications are available for Windows 8 that simulate the old Start menu experience. The availability of the Charms bar isn't obvious, as there are no visual cues as to how you display it.This makes perfect sense until you realize that Windows doesn't always share user-defined aspects of the application between these two versions. For example, bookmarks I create in Windows 8 style IE are not available in IE when run from Desktop view. One can hope this will be fixed in a future release.
Really? Thoroughly enjoyable?
