Excellent for tablets. I would consider buy one only if they improve their marketplace, or if I could dual boot android with it.

We didn't see enough footage for the desktop action, I think its an improved version of windows 7 with some extra inside-apps like the Media Center in 7 but now 8 has more similar apps.

I don't like the naming 7,8,9..Names would've been better.
Whatever you do, do it for the Lulz.

Windows 8 booting in 8 seconds

One half of Windows 7 users shut down their computers instead of hibernating them or putting them to sleep, according to Microsoft. Thatís not a surprising statistic to me ó I personally shut down my Win 7 machines because Iíve had drivers fail to initialize upon wake, as well as the rare blue screen. With Windows 8, though, users may change their mind about hibernation, because of the extreme benefit: in a new video released today on the Building Windows 8 blog (embedded after the break), you can see a full-sized Windows 8 machine boot to the Metro UI in just eight seconds.

Apparently, itís all thanks to a new hybrid shutdown procedure thatís pretty similar to hibernation ó you know, the process where the computer saves the systemís current state to the hard disk, then loads it back at startup. However, this one doesnít save your open apps, just the Windows 8 kernel session which the OS would typically have to build from scratch. That makes for a much smaller hibernation file (which thereby loads quicker) and the process also takes advantage of multi-core CPUs to speed things further. Of course, on a UEFI rig with a solid state drive, things really scream ó see for yourself after the break!

problems of performance appraisal is that it sucks to memorize them
