Windows has been reimagined to focus on your life. The beautiful, fast, and fluid design is perfect for a range of hardware: from compact, touch-enabled tablets and lightweight laptops, to PCs and large, powerful all-in-ones with high-definition screens. It's smooth, intuitive, and gives you instant access to your people, apps, and stuff, so you spend less time searching and more time doing.

You'll love browsing through the Windows Store and downloading apps to help you work more efficiently, or installing the latest games so you can compete with friends. Apps can work together, too, so you can share photos, maps, contacts, links, and whatever else you want.

No matter what you want to do, you can get it done quickly in Windows 8. Whether you're completing a project, playing a game, or reading a book, with Windows 8, you can use touch, mouse, and keyboard together - seamlessly - to do what you want, the way you want. No need to choose one or the other. It starts quickly and it's cloud-connected so you can access your photos, documents, and settings on any Windows 8 PC.

Some stuff is great in Windows 8, and many things are not! So i have mixed feelings about win8. Testing DPC Latency gives me minimum of 5-15 (which I never seen in any OS), but has long green bars every 3-4 bars, which will get ironed out soon enough. So there is potential for this OS, just I can remove metro which I hate. But its not as bad as it was first, you get used to it, even if you dont want to? Win8 Sp1, maybe then Ill check it out!?

imo the taskbar looks idiotic without the start menu. And the taskbar is the most probable next thing in line to get binned; "omg we found that almost nobody uses the taskbar anymore. No, they instead like to send hate mail back to us; so we decided to remove the taskbar completely, now you have to wish your applications back to the desktop."

The only thing better in Win8 compared to Win7 is the beautiful wallpapers that come with it, thats about the only thing thats better?

I accidently plugged a hard disk with Windows 8 to the wrong computer today. It still worked. Too bad Windows 8 is aimed for tablets and there isn't Start Menu.
