I use windows 8 on one of my laptops and there were some quirks that came
along with the new graphics layer but I think they are getting ironed out
at a fast enough pace.

As for finding the control panel, one thing that became invaluable once i
found it is right clicking on the windows logo on the task bar. This opens
a context menu with fast access to the most important parts.
