    Lol, why the fuck is this in the shit list?

    Anyways, I tried a tablet (hasn't been released to the market yet) with Win8 on it that my friend owns. It seems to be basically Windows 7 with the option to switch to tablet mode, i.e. Windows Phone style.

    Seems pretty decent.

    Can't believe u're clueless still.

    Anyways, not to be rude.

    I installed win 8, did like the speed and that's it. I don't like their new user menu and etc.

    Would be good for a touchscreen

    Its 90% the same as Windows 7. I've played with it, and unless you have a touch screen and actually like that "home page" type deal, the new features are pretty much useless.

    I've tried the developer version (Only accessible one)

    Nothing special just faster and to be honest the User interface is confusing!

    I haven't used it myself as it wouldn't install on virtualbox for some reason, but I have seen some screenshots and read some writeups about it. Like people have already said: it seems very similar to Win7 which, in my opinion, isn't a bad thing

    I just switched my main desktop to Win7 so it'll be quite some time before I change again. My laptops run Windows Vista which will be upgraded soon to 7. I still miss XP :(
