Only one word matters at all in your post. TABLET! This OS is designed purely for touch AND THATS THE ISSUE. On a desktop or laptop... its a completely different issue.

I will admit that even me with my venomous hatred of Win8 is considering a Surface. Though I think I may try to hold off until the Pro version with x86 and a stylus

Not everyone, I think it's nearly across the board better than Win7 on the desktop, but I don't care enough to post much about it.

Yeah but I think that's just people judging it without using it, like what usually happens in the tech world.

I love Windows 8 so far. Quick, snappy, only issue was getting used to how it treats the start menu and full screen apps. After that 3 minute exploration, I work very quickly in windows 8 and look forward to getting it for all my rigs.

I did not know that you COULD do that to a tablet. I thought that the OS you got with it stayed on it except for patches.

What Tablet do you have Soul?
