Been an evangelical mac user for 10 years, but need to buy a new laptop and thinking about a Windows 8 machine.
I am tired of the locked in Mac environment (esp the way it manages files. Bugger me it so simple now on windows - good job MS), and I was quite impressed by Win 7 (esp a clean install) and with the wee icloud app things sync nicely.
Need 17" laptop + run a 24" external for photo editing (at home and on the move), so really will only use MS office, iTunes, IE9 (or safari), lightroom and photoshop.
Will windows 8 work well? I heard it was very good for dual monitor work (menu available on both screens), fast, stable and such like.
Based on the above, would appreciate opinions.
