http://www.theverge.com/2012/4/21/2964647/msft-windows-8-cp-usage-exceeds-that-of-windows-7-beta Fact is, I'm super excited about Windows 8. I'm excited about the start screen, the application sandboxing, Client Hyper-V, Storage Spaces, improved multi-monitor support, improved search, application contracts, the new app store, the fact that it requires LESS hardware then Windows 7 and on and on. The one part that I am not excited about is the workflow breakup from Desktop-->Metro when you hit the Windows key for performing search. That's probably going to be the #1 deal breaker for many, but we'll see what Microsoft comes up with the next few months. I imagine that was the #1 gripe so far in CP.
