To use a classic: Apple should sue!

Windows 8 is DOA unless there are major changes. I have tried "Preview" and they have to separate the Metro part from the desktop part. I have read there is an edit to remove Metro and makes it work much better.

Metro is a farce.  It looks like it was designed by Playschool.  If they release this, they will be a laughing stock.

the current form of windows 8 with the metro menu will pervent people from multitasking so unless they make a version without metro they can only sell in the tablet market. must be the new vista to get us to wait for windows 9.

x86 code can't run on ARM

Therefore a traditional desktop on ARM tablets would be useless, and windows 9 can't change that either.

Personally I think I'll wait until Haswell to get a tablet considering not being able to use dropbox pretty much kills the idea for me from the get go.

The Metro UI is Ugly, Its like the Ugly twin sister of Windows Phone 7 another Mico-flop

Take a hint from HP there is no room for another Tablet OS, unless you sell them for 99 for a 16 and 149 for a 32 like the HP firesale

Or the smart developers will just bypass the metro marketplace and sell directly to the users.

This is like the mafia shaking down a business for protection money.

I hope anti-trust investigators are examining Microsoft closely.

They would have to look into Apple even closer.
