Default Opinions on Windows 8

I'm just curious, what's the general opinion of Windows 8 here? Personally, I hate it more than Vista. Yeah, it's fast and stable, but a pain in the backside to use. Even with a start menu replacement installed, it still lacks a few features which I often use when troubleshooting and fixing PCs (the F8 boot menu for instance).
No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards!

Default XFX Radeon HD6950 and Steam on Win 8

I don't know if it's my LCD,Radeon drivers,Windows 8 or a game install problem but when I log into Steam on my Win 8 setup and load a game it will not go to full screen mode I end up with my game being framed??. I have Steam set up on Win 7 and it works beautifully NP's

So yea Win 8 kinda sucks for me I don't think I have booted into my Win 8 partition in about a month now lol cause it just ticks me off about the Steam setup. I like most of the rest of Win 8 the music player is great I can stream all kinds of artists of my choosing for free I like that aspect of the new music player kind of a step up from WMP Radio Stations.
