I think that once people learn or memorize the shortcuts win 8 would be a decent OS
I think that's the main disconnect with the users (like myself) who hate the new interface (and who are praying for linux game support prior to win7 losing it's support). Quite frankly, the only shortcuts I use with any regularity are ctrl-c / ctrl-v, even using the windows key is restricted to those times when I want to drop to the desktop from an application (like a full screen game) that isn't windowed.

I use menus almost exclusively, and have no desire to learn / memorize shortcuts, or non-inuitive methods of accessing what I need/want.
