I just installed it on my big Laptop. So far, everything works. I'm trying to learn the new Window Management paradigm, but so far, my many years of doing it it old school has me very very frustrated.

You know that a business/industry is starting to enter old age when marketing takes over design. While the word "NEW" trumps even "SALE" in a supermarket for increasing interest, operating systems are not supermarkets. Duckling syndrome is a far more powerful force in automation, and "NEW" generally means worse. Even if better, it means countless hours of pain.
