We are. I've set it up for my computer illiterate mother. All she does is write email, check Facebook and browse the internet. After I briefly showed her the main differences with the Start Screen, she is up and running on her own and now tells me it is easier to use than Windows 7 was. I later installed it on my girlfriend's laptop after getting a free copy through our university, and she loves it, again pointing to it being easier to use. She subsequently purchased a Surface without even talking to me, and loves how everything syncs between her laptop and her Surface. I have the same setup (a Surface and a laptop), and the syncing is great. I work in the IT department of a company in the Fortune 50 and strangely, everybody I talk to enjoys Windows 8, both from a user standpoint and a developer standpoint. Our company is actually in the process of rolling out Office 2013 to all the workstations. Admittedly, Windows 8 will likely be skipped just because they still haven't totally finished with Windows 7. However, we are actively testing Server 2012.
For a true power user, Windows 8 is also great. The enhancements to Windows Explorer are very welcome, as are the enhancements to the Task Manager. The new shortcut menu that is accessed by pressing Win+X is phenomenally useful, so much so that I constantly find myself trying to instinctively use it on Windows 7 machines. Strangely enough, every time I mention that menu on these forums, nobody ever comments on it. Because they don't know about it. Because they haven't actually given Windows 8 the time of day. You can tell me you used it for months until you gave up until you are blue in the face. Your lack of actual knowledge on basic features of the OS speak louder than words.
Go to your local Best Buy and check out the big section of touch-enabled Windows 8 laptops, tablets and all-in-ones. They are really cool, and every time I go, I see lots of people playing with them.
The funny thing is, the only people I have actually ran in to that don't like Windows 8 are people on the internet and Mac users.

That is true for Vista and Windows 7 as well.Edited by W4nderer - 6/2/13 at 9:26pm
