Considering the price i paid for Windows 8 (£25), it isn't bad at all. You could say the metro UI is purely aimed at the tablet market, maybe it is. But it gives you something else other than looking at boring desktop screen. you can add news, sport to keep up to date. Add a couple of free games. Then when you need to do something PC related, you switch back to desktop mode.
