Best OS yet, I use it with my windows 8 phone to conduct business activities. Both produces are very stable and fast. Having common interface between them makes the organization of task and data convenient. I purchase a third part application for the phone which allows synchronization between the phone and my PC, which removed the problem of confidential information be sync'd via the cloud.

Windows 8 does take some getting use to but once it's familiar, it makes organizing the workspace on the home pages to best fit my tasks/application selection.
The live tile function makes it easy to manage emails, messages and notification from other application.

Opening the Desktop, it returns you to a traditional windows look and feel. If upgrading from Vista or Windows 7, arrange the home screen with the application you use the most, and it will preserve those application links in the Windows 8 desktop. This will help with the learning curve to the new interface.

Personally, this Microsoft version 8.l is totally confusing to me and hard to navigate around in. I'm not saying everyone would have the same experience as myself. But I made the mistake of installing the Nextissue app and when I ran into difficulty and when I called Microsoft support for help, they said I would have to buy a service from them that cost $188.00 to have the problem resolved. Mind you that may be helpful if someone wanted to purchase it but I didn't want to pay that extra expense, I just wanted the problem resolved. Maybe it's just me, but,the staff who answer the support line I honestly could not make out what they said most of the time I had to ask them to repeat what they were saying. I always found everything else I bought from Staples to be very good. Microsoft Help Line turned out in my experience to be not helpful at all. You really have to be more experienced that I was to install it and fix any problems.

Comments about Microsoft Windows 8 (1-License) [Boxed]:

I like Windows 8, but find that when I open some pages I can't get off with hitting ctrl alt delete. Out side of that everything else is good.
