This is interesting, I'm curious to see how Windows 8 will turn out in the end. In my personal opinion, I'm really not liking the Metro UI for desktops. It's awesome for phones, like it was designed for, but don't think it's practical for PC users, and I think it'll be another reason to keep big companies, such as NASA, with Windows XP. People really don't like major changes, I've noticed... We'll see how this works out.
Very true. All the big-name computer companies thought a GUI would be a disaster as well, but it obviously went very well. I've seen some videos around of Windows 8 Consumer Preview (Or something like that) and I didn't look all that great, but you can at least go back to the normal UI. It looked awesome on tablets, I'd love to see some Win8 tablets in the price range of some of the Android tablets out. Or at least one that runs a tablet version of WP7, or something like that.
