    Improvements?? Tick.
    Speed?? Tick.
    Better UI? Tick.
    Overall awesomeness?? TICK TICK TICK TICK ...

    if this is a miniscule version of the whole OS Windows 8 is...I'M GAME!!

    WP8 for sure(may be HTC 8X) and if all goes well....MS Surface!!!

    I was running the Office 2013 preview for a few weeks, but I had some formatting compatibility issues with a few work documents that I didn't have time to "fix" at the time, so I had to step back to 2010 until things calm down at work a bit.

    Overall, I felt 2013 needs more color or some kind of shading to better distinguish screen elements, but I enjoyed working with it mostly. There's definitely improvements throughout that are going to be really nice.

    I want to give it a better chance in the future.

    In fact, i liked it for the colour scheme..light, grey, simple and plain.

    I haven't come across of what u are saying yet...but let's see...I love it!
    I love Metro UI...

    I have been using W8 on my laptop since it was released to TechNet. I am just really liking it. As a standard Windows client, the desktop is every bit as good as W7. The metro bits aren't bad...it can only get better as the app marketplace improves.

    I agree, I'm running W8 on my laptop from Technet and I love it. Smooth and fast. The desktop environment is even faster than W7.
