I too have found Windows 8 very easy to use with hardware.
Anything I plug in installs and works great.
I've never had the issues that I sometimes had with Windows 7 and internet connections.
Now that I'm getting used to where everything is I can't imagine going back to Windows 7.
I don't like the interface but since I don't have to use it, that isn't an issue.
I can't wait for the release so I can install it over my Windows 7 install and have some more space.
I installed Windows 8 on a small partition and have had issues with space as I added more stuff.
It will be nice to have it installed on the hard drive I have Windows 7 on and have lots of free space.
