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.

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.

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

    I had some computer problems and decided to upgrade to Windows 8 in spite of what I had read or heard from other users. It does take some patience, time and tenacity to master. I certainly have not even touched the tip of the iceberg! I am still learning what Windows 8 can do. I do like the applications that were already installed, weather, calendar and internet. I have added a few other apps and that was easy. I am still learning and sometimes 'learn' something new by 'accident', but that works for me. I would buy again.
