Even my 10, 13 and 15 year olds use it with no problem. Same for my extremely non-techie wife. I personally have no issues with it and like it quite a bit.
I guess my family and I get smarter while the confused and frustrated get . . . more confused and frustrated.
Thats largely been my experience as well although my Wife only uses OS X now.
Ive stated in earlier threads that I believe its the most experienced PC / Windows users that are the most vocal and outspoken against the Windows 8 new UI. This likely stems from being pushed out of their comfort zone of experience (knowledge).
Its the less experienced or less classically experienced users that seem to take well to the new Windows UI as well as younger users. That and the more open minded users.
The expression you cant teach old dogs new tricks came about for a reason.
