There will be a lot of growing pains with Windows 8. Just as there are with most every new operating system.
Microsoft is all-in and devoted to unified visual experience across all platforms (desktop PC, tablet, Xbox, phone). Yes, Windows 8 is designed with a touch interface in mind and will be completely foreign to the uninitiated. But there is no going back. The days of the desktop PC are numbered. Microsoft isn't going to come to some stark realization and go back to the traditional Windows experience. It just isn't going to happen.
My professional advice is to go with Windows 8 and try to embrace it with an open mind.
