Eh.... 1-2 days. I came from Vista then went to 7 and all got were problems, problems, and problems. Couldn't stand 7 and switched to 8 within 1 week of installing 7. 8 is smooth and fast and I like UEFI Booting times too.

It was a bit different and maybe even annoying for a start but hey, what an improvement regards the loading time and responsiveness even on older hardware!

-24 weeks - yup, negative. I had to deploy a 2012 based Domain Controller before I was forced to work on a Windows 8 machine for the first time. Effectively got thrown into the deep end of the pool.
I still dislike the Metro/ Modern UI for any devices that are not strictly touch based and certainly hate how inaccessible or missing some of the advanced settings are.

Not a really long time, after 4 days of using Windows 8 I got used to it. The only thing I still can't get used to is not having the Start Menu

It's not that big of a deal. I remember the change from 3.1 to 95. Good night some people lost their minds over there. Same thing here....

Since it's fast and much more stable then Windows 7, I stuck with it in first sight.

Took me less than a week. I don't understand all the hate Windows 8 gets. I feel it's better than 7.

Usually it takes me less than a week to get used something computer related..but to be fully getting used to it, takes me around 2 weeks

I refuse to use W8. As a tech, it's not a very nice OS to work with. I prefer windows 7 over 8 all day.
