No, but I'm a Linux and Mac guy. So I'm not really the target market for it.

The feedback I've seen has been mostly negative, as it's a big change on the desktop. Hopefully people will get used to it as time goes by. I think it's a very original kind of interface, and Microsoft should get some credit for that.

It's probably too early to have decent stats on that. The only thing I found -- and this clearly is a very small sample -- was a poll on Overclockersclub.com. It showed that nearly three-quarters of respondents (and there were only 57 when I looked) weren't planning to get Windows 8. Only 12% said they were, and 14% said they would eventually.
