Bought a laptop for my kid which came with win 8 as only option, hence I had 10+ hours to play around with it. Horrible, also usable... Anyway, even without frustrating user interface, win8 just looks fugly! Who in their clear mind would like to use anything like this. It has zero appeal.

"am not sure If I am interested in doing something related to my research interests" ---- this is a warning sign!!!! You should not do it! You need to have passion and luck to succeed after you defend. It doesn't look like you have the first component. Also how are your writing, communication and marketing skills? - these are becoming more important than research when you plan to stay in academy. PhD in biol. sci., while fun to study, is a horrible choice career and life-style wise. I have one... Good luck anyway!

change is welcome if it adds something, is beneficial. metro doesn't add but takes. sure my grandma and two year old will be doing fine with 8. it is great if you are handicaped, or if you have a learning disability, but some people need to work using pcs. epic fall for MS. not crying, i gave away my win 7 licence and moved to mint.
