Engadget Review

Windows 8 review

So long as you have a touch-enabled PC, Windows 8 is easier to use than you may have feared. Just give yourself time to master the learning curve.

Pros
  • Works well on tablets, traditional PCs
  • Deep integration with SkyDrive, Xbox
  • Free music streaming
  • Improved multi-monitor support
Cons
  • Steep learning curve
  • Frustrating to use with a mouse
  • Limited selection in Windows Store
