A year from the official release and Windows 8 is already a great operating system.

It will be a smash hit in my opinion.

Start Menu is now Start Page, it's that easy.

And if you are installing the Windows 8 developer build on a Virtual Machine, don't even think about giving it a fair evaluation.  You have got to put it on hardware to see how it works.  I tried it on a Virtual Machine and was very disappointed.  I tried it on a laptop and was blown away.

Beautiful job on the operating system and the UI.
