Well after playing around with it some more its ok.
desktop, and a lot of other things work just like 7
start menu is ok, and apps could be cool (most are not, but the potential is there)
new task manager with more info
dificult to shut down
metro apps are aweful right now
awkward navigating from things other than desktop
and my biggest gripe, if I use an app like IE or Chrome, it is not the same as launching from desktop!
