Windows 8 hands-on review

I upgraded the OS in my Samsumg laptop to Windows 8 Pro last week. I thought I can share my review of the product here with you. First of all it is reasonably priced at 2000 Rs and can be bought over net with a credit card. I downloaded the 2 GB install file, copied it to a USB and installed it without much trouble.
The major difference is the start screen. It is now a set of tiles on screens that slide, like in touch phones. You can add applications, rearrange the tiles etc. the OS is designed for tablets. So if you are using Win 8 in a non touch (like a laptop in my case) You should know the keyboard shortcuts from the metro start page. Then it becomes much more easy. The following shortcuts are very handy.
