The only reason I upgraded is that I don't want to miss out on the advantages of DirectX 11.2 - once games start utilising it. I figured I might as well get used to Win8.

So far, it's been easier than I expected to adjust - though I think the Metro concept is complete stupidity for non-Tablets. But it's pretty easy to circumvent - and beyond DX11.2 - there are a few neat new features. I especially like the new interface for moving/replacing files - where multiple process are listed in one window and you get detailed information about performance. I also like that there's only a single confirmation needed to replace files - no matter what.

Also, the faster boot/shutdown times are nice - but pretty trivial, since I almost never turn off my machine. The only real benefit is when I update drivers and what not.

But, really, there's no significant reason to upgrade for the vast majority of users out there.
