Today is the last day to buy Windows 8 (specifically, upgrade) at the discount price of $40. Is it worth it?

I'm going to build a new desktop in a few months, and can install either Windows 7 or 8 onto it. I can buy Windows 8 and install it at my leisure later on, but today is the last day.
For those who have now used both (with a non-touchscreen monitor), how do you feel about the new version?
I know the various issues with metro and will install some software to bypass it on start-up and will re-register some of the files to default to desktop software instead of the various metro apps.
I already have a Windows 7 that I can install for free. It's only $40, but is it worth it?
