Or how about when it hit 2.5 million copies (what Microsoft initially set as the "cap" for previews), then raised that 2.5 million cap so more people could experience it.

I'm sorry, but the reality is, MILLIONS of people HAVE TRIED IT, and THE MAJORITY do NOT like it.

So I'm not sure why you and others keep basically saying that all the negative press is coming from people who haven't tried it ... because that is simply NOT the case. PLENTY of people HAVE TRIED IT, and they don't like it.

The release preview is vastly different than the RTM. The release preview was locked down and had many features removed.

So, the reality is, millions of people have not tried it.

If you want to play that sort of word game, then yes, technically you are correct, very few people have actually tried the RTM.

Different, yes.

Vastly, no.

What irony? Release Preview.

Getting very tempted to do a little "searching" and see just how great these RTM differences are. Apparently some people have access to it and are saying that it is really different. Could be interesting to see for myself.

Irony is that millions downloaded it, but people somehow manage to see less than 100 or even 1000 negative opinions, a few regurgitated alarmist headlines and all of a sudden its the majority.

Do you have any proof of your claim of most people who used W8 so far not liking it?

You mean other than the dozen or so different polls conducted on this site as well as other sites such as HardOCP, TechRepublic, CNet, etc, etc?

I'm glad you admit that you'll be getting Win8 regardless, and I think that's the path most people will take, even if they hate metro.
I personally like Metro. By default, it sucks. A lot. All those apps can be uninstalled and you can put stuff that only you want on it. I assume people that store shortcuts on their desktop won't care about metro at all and they'll never have to use it after going to the desktop. However, I stored my shortcuts on the start menu. I like keeping my desktop clean, so Metro is great for storing all my shortcuts. All I have to do is go into the corner, or press the Windows key, and all of them are right there. It doesn't bother me, and I prefer it over having a messy desktop.
I feel this Win8 hate will fade away soon after release. It's very cheap to upgrade Win7 to Win8, and I see many people doing it. Most of the hate is from users who have never even tried the OS.

Yeah that one has been used before also. Except that if your basis for not liking it is Metro, then the Preview does it all for you.

I don't like it because:
  • I don't like Metro
  • I prefer the Start Menu
  • I like Aero

To me, those are all very legit reasons to not buy the OS. As Blameless (I think it was) said a few times, many of the new features pro users have been doing for a couple of years. I can handle 15 seconds more to boot in order to avoid completely having to use Metro.

I don't like being forced to use something against my will. I'd prefer to warm up to it in small doses in my own time or wait for it to be vastly improved.

As it stands MS seem to want to make it harder to avoid so it's making it harder for me to keep.

Also, I won't be buying it. I'll get whatever is free from the Student subscriptions.

I don't like Aero but use it. My real complaint is that I can't separate color preferences for the taskbar and windows. I hate moving a window under the taskbar and it blocking the name of the windows open. It's irritating you can't change the colors and opacity separately, but that you can't even change the color of the text in the taskbar without editing some hexdecimal code in the system.
