I've finally started mucking about with it recently on my tablet. I've had it dual booting with ubuntu, but never bothered to explore it much. After browsing the apps on the start menu, I pretty much unpinned all of them except weather, maps and camera. I really like the weather app... and that's pretty much all I like about W8. I can see what they are trying to do, and I kind of don't mind the art style, but most of the stuff isn't aimed at me, and I don't like them pushing me to buy their shit (that I can get for free via ubuntu, cos I'm a dirty stinking pirate). Anybody found any good uses for it? Any reason to boot into it other than for the rare occasion I need to run something that won't work in wine?
