The main reason I occasionally "hate on it", is the fact that Microsoft has tried to cram its flagship desktop OS into the mobile OS paradigm. Touch screen optimized default desktop environment, live content centric, heck, they even refer to installing non-Windows Store apps as "side loading".

I'm sure they've made some compelling improvements where it counts, but my PC is the heart and soul of my digital life. My smart phone is just what I use to make phone calls and for when having a PC at my disposal isn't practical. I find it offensive that they would deign to try and make the PC more functionally similar to a cell phone, targeting the least common denominator demographic. angrysmiley.gif

Being an admin myself using solidworks and cam software, I would keep Win 8 clear of any production environment until youve thoroughly tested all the features you need, also wait until Solidworks is designed to run on windows 8, helps a lot with smaller more annoying issues that come up

Windows 8 is officially supported by SolidWorks 2013. I work 8 hours daily in the office using Solidworks but there I have Windows 7 x64. I just installed windows 8 at home. In a few days I will test it modeling my new ST10 completely rolleyes.gif I'm waiting for my order to arrive biggrin.gif
