I've used it ans still use it.
I installed it in a virtual using Oracle's Virtualbox and it's growing on me. Now that i discovered that the Windows key allows you to go from the desktop to the panels it makes it easier. I know when Vista and Windows 7 came out the security suites for XP didn't work but I installed Norton 360 in Windows 8 and it worked fine. I also installed Windows Office 2010 and it worked fine.
