I really do dislike Win 8 and just don't see it working on a desktop/laptop.
Didn't they even go so far as to pull certain support for devs unless they were developing for win 8/metro? IIRC that was the impression folks got when they pulled MS website access to new gadgets.

Everything I read/hear WRT win8 points to a decision having been made in MS management to shove it (and metro) down our throats whether we want it or not.......
