From all I have read, it is much more suitable for touch screens than keyboard/mouse at least as far as the general interface. I think that for now, reasonably powerful desktops are better off with Windows 7. Ultra thins, especially if/when they include a touch screen, would be more suitable for Windows 8. Windows 8 with newer 22NM processors, now sets the stage for fast powerful tablets, if you add a portable keyboard (see the TV ad) you have something even more versatile for the future.
For desktops and traditional laptops, I think I would skip Windows 8 though, at least for now. In fact I am considering getting and putting away an extra OEM copy of Windows 7, when I find a decent sale, for my next build.
Just my opinion, of course.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

That's really a question that only you can answer based on your particular needs. A bit like asking "is a Toyota Prius the right vehicle for me?".

Read a few reviews and/or download the preview and try it for yourself.

My general recommendation is this: Do you have a multi-touch touchscreen? If so, get Win8. If not, don't.

Having installed Windows 8 Pro over Windows 7 on an older Lenovo T60P laptop I am VERY pleased with it. It is a great starting point for a modern operating system and work well with keyboard and mouse. This OS will only get better as Microsoft and the App builders expand on its current abilities. But, it still has a few rough spots (such as my audio driver doesn't always start when I boot the system) -- but these annoyances will be smoothed out with updates.

I recommend that you go for it. The upgrade price is only $40.
