What happened to intuitive?
No kidding! I recently acquired a tablet with windows 8, and I actually figured out how to shut it down but it took me WAY too long. There are a few ways to do it too but it's friggin ridiculous why they didn't stick a "button" on the start menu....bar....or whatever the hell you call it.
Overall though, I honestly like windows 8 on the tablet. I think in that environment metro is pretty smooth and slick. Most of the things you'll want is easily accessible like email, etc.. mind you I haven't had it that long and I haven't had too much time to play on it very extensively yet. Maybe 5 or 6 hours so far. So my opinion may change.
