Now that Windows 8 has been released to MSDN and TechEd subscribers, anybody been able to play with the RTM release? What are your thoughts on it?

I personally still dislike Metro, but have to give it time to try to get used to it. Probably have to wait for other apps to come out to make it feel more like I want it to. I've spent probably 3 - 4 hours on it this past weekend, and then switched back to Win 7 to do some work.

Metro "Problems" as I see it:
IE: Hate not having tabs
Need a way to shrink the size of the tiles, they're huge on a 27" screen
Music/Video browser, hate the interface, always showing me the stuff they want to.
Lots of default tiles I'm removing, especially the "live" ones.

i played with it a tad, had driver issues while gaming, and haven't touched it since.

I don't use windows music/video players, I use other programs so that's not an issue for me.

I really like the improvements to the task manager though.
