If you install this on a pc with windows 7 (does it come with a uninstaller to remove it) also will i be able to go back to my previous windows 7 system.

I just used VMware Player to install it so it wouldn't affect my normal os. TBH I really hate the new start page and right menu.

i just purchased an HP Compaq 2710P to prepare for Windows 8. I will let you guys know how it goes after I get all the upgrades completed so it will meet the specs required for the install of the x64 version. Look for a review from me in the future.

the new start, and right menu is stupid, as if that makes things more user friendly. as well they have made things all boxy. I hate every thing about it.. at least with vista it looked ok this just blows

i guess if i was on a smart phone that layout might be ok or if i had a touch screen monitor MAYBE i could live with it.. as is I dislike it and I can't imagine any business that would like that setup either. Thankfully there is a hack to restore the start button. I really hate the right menu.. My prediction this is going to be like the vista release.. a huge screw up. I haven't seen anywhere on the net where users have good things to say about , yet in typical Microsoft fashion they don't seem to care what their users want.

I agree, think I would only use it if I had to on a tablet or smart phone, but heck if I gonna use one of them I rather use Android, in the end this will be like all the other failed OS's windows releases. 98, xp, and 7 being the only work they have done that I like.
