I have win 8 installed on my machine for about 3 months now. I am a power user (.net Programmer) and gamer.

-rock solid Performance
-missing start menu -> dont care (win + X)
-all games work as in win 7
-Metro -> dont care

Two weeks ago we bought a Samsung ativ tablet with win 8 (x86) and now whenever I use an Ipad i'm thinking: how the hell can anyone do stuff with this apple garbage? Win 8 is not just Microsoft coming late to the tablet Party, it is crushing all the other android, iOS products out there.

Even Win RT is superior to an iPad (Network shares, multiple user profiles, file explorer out of the box, Docking apps)

In my opinion they did a hell of a Job merging all the "legacy" code with a Slick new tablet UI, but nobody seems to realise that providing backwards compatibility for millions of devices and applications is a big deal...
