    Fine to use W8 on Ultrabooks but the feedback I am getting and seeing on the W8 beta release does not bode well for a successful future for 8 beyond the hand portable market. Windows 7 is still the version of choice and likely to remain so, imhp.

    Win8 sucks and businesses won't touch it unless they get downgrade rights like everyone did with Dell PC2 for years during the visra fiasco. All this crap will do is drive more Joe Sixpack types to ipads and ICS devices.

    We tried Win8 on a Touchsmart at the office the other day, just to see what using w8 in an office tool is really like. The whole thing just annoyed us, even the pro-tablet jockeys. Typical office user A wants to get a new program started, has to jump back to Metro - are you REALLY going to move your hands away from mouse and keyboard for a few secs just to do the ipad-wannabe swipe motion? No. Maybe a couple fo times for the gimmick factor. Then it gets old. Simply annoying, even with ribbonised office 2010. Win8 under the hood is otehrwise quite good - i'd be really up for it if it wasn't for Metro. MS just killed the windows PC as the default computing device.
