Is Windows 8 worth getting?

I am thinking of getting a new desktop in the future, as I find my laptop a bit small these days. It works OK and has W7, but I feel like a change. Do I REALLY need one? No not really, but that is rarely the point is it.
My question of course is, Windows 8. I will want a desktop if I change and I have read on here that it is designed more for the tablet etc. Does it work well on the desktops.
And more importantly can I transfer all my W7 stuff to W8? All the programs and music and photos and videos that I use now, is there a transfer system to the new OS?
I won't buy in any case until the fuss and price has gone down next year, but I thought I would post to see what the forums think.

You may find that the software companies involved release compatibility updates, enabling their products to run in Windows 8.
My experience is that some companies wait to see just how many complaints they get before committing money to a free upgrade, and of course they can always use the opportunity to try to sell you a newer, compatible version.
