    So.. I have been getting bombarded by Microsoft Surface (their new iPad killer) and Harvey Norman ads with those Californian Hipsters.

    All I see is a very wishy washy click, move, detach and swipe in Windows 8. It doesn't look particularly useful and practical. I am aware it can run anything (office, acrobat and all those other essential Win programs) which makes it more appealing for those buying a tablet.

    Has anyone tried or will you buy Windows 8 or the Surface?

    Watch this video on YouTube.

    It is Windows 7 for me followed closely by Windows XP. Vista was the worst, along with 2000 and the millennium edition.

    you
    know what..I think that Windows 8 is more for anything with touch screen...I seen someone with a touchscree HP laptop and it was cool the way it functions but not on a regular laptop/desktop. So on a tablet, yes, it would be pretty cool. :yes

    Maybe you tried it in the Beta fase, we know that beta OS's still having bugs and all...

    I agree with you, I installed Win 8 pro in 4 ciber coffe pc's & my mini lap. results... people want to use the win 8 pc's more than the win 7 pc's :yes . I heared a lot of times: oh! Win 8, cool !!
    And... i must say, my 3 years old daughter know how to use win 8 Geek

    Interestingly it appears that Windows 8 is marginally (just a bit) faster than Windows 7 in most things. http://www.techspot.com/review/561-windows8-vs-windows7/page2.html

    Keep in mind that the post is from August, so Windows 8 might get a little bloated with all those notorious windows updates and not be as fast as before.
