    Its not bad, but I have a ton of games purchased for PC that I couldn't play on Linux. Could always dual boot, but rebooting to choose Windows everytime I felt like playing a game would be tedious.

    I actually installed Windows 8 yesterday. It takes getting used to but I think I actually dig it.

    I was running it on my Asus, I couldn't stand it. All the techies love it. I think they just hate Windows and this is like the ugly rebound to make the ex question themselves.

    For the video to say the Phone and PC don't communicate is bullshit. Every solid app can sync with your PC if it is worth the space on your phone. My phone has evernote, a calendar, photo and media sharing all comparable with my computer without installing add-ons.

    It's faster and tighter, I like it. Not super excited about the start menu but overall it's extremely fast and stable.
