Indeed Microsoft is offering such a low price packages makes it worth upgrading.  Windows 8 bring whole new user interface and feature. Some of which have shown positive response from customers while others like no start menu bring some criticism  The most of all highlighted feature is new Metro UI which makes it stand out from other previous versions.

Metro User Interface in native in Windows 8 which helps to maintain quick shortcuts of apps and programs right from start screen. One obvious advantage over start menu is Metro UI support touch based devices, which would be very tedious to handle in case of start menu. The fresh looks also gives new life to computer.

Once installed Windows 8 Metro style UI will be loaded. This is what we found in our case. Somewhat similar to real metro but need lot more improvement. You can use the apps to access shortcuts right from here. To return back either click on desktop tile or close button on upper right corner. The application runs in background and you can launch Metro UI again from minimized Windows.

The application is still in development stage, We expect developer to add new feature in upcoming versions. For this time you can enjoy Metro style on Windows 7 totally free without upgrading to Windows 8.
