    The people *****ing about Microsoft in the comments are cracking me up. It's like a time warp to ten years ago. I'm sorry, but Windows 7, Windows Phone, Microsoft Security Essentials, Zune.... Microsoft has turned it around IMHO. All the complaining is pretty cliche/kneejerk.

    They will come around. Its hard to let go of their strange need to feel 'hip' and declare anything MS as horrible. There is no denying their work the last 5 years, and the new mobile designs are outstanding. Slowly these people will swallow their pride and take an honest step back and say, you know what? This stuff is actually pretty sweet.

    Man. That would be a nice side piece to my Focus. Consider me.sold. Zune, 360, Wp7, and now Windows8. MS is really on a roll.

    Needs more time with it... The videos I'm seeing are all chopped up and leave me wondering how regular (non-touch) desktops are going to fair with this UI. You can see the "old" Windows 7 taskbar in some pics and videos, but how do you get to that view? I'm worried and excited.

    Very much agree with the comment on the video dtboos posted:
    wowowowow microsoft let us understand that iPad is really a GIANT IPOD TOUCH...this is a tablet
