I've just installed Windows 8 on my work PC yesterday. And I can't form an opinion on it. The GUI is butt ugly, but I guess because they've trimmed it back. It's very weird honestly.

Anyone else try it yet?

Stange, for me Win8 is the sole main reason I got back to using Linux after quite a while. Not that I actually tried it but seeing screenshots was more than I could bear. When you become old(er) you need stability and being faceslapped with a completely different UI, whether you want it or not, is the last thing you want. If they don't commit suicide in the workstation non-touch market I will be sincerely and utterly amazed.

In fact I had an occasion to toy with a mobile device running Win8 and despite my negative attitude I kinda liked it. But why would anyone force oneself to use it without touch interface is beyond me.

I agree that creating an OS with a default touch interface that gets installed on many non-touch machines is bizarre at best. They should have at least created two interfaces with a choice to select on during the install.
