I recently got a Exopc slate off of Ebay, and it came with dual-booted Win8 (32bit) and Win7 (64bit), so since I got it, I've been alternating between the Win8 and Win7 installations, and I guess that, at this point, I don't really see much point to Win8 (vs. Win7)?
I saw the other thread in this forum (http://www.tabletpcbuzz.com/showthre...over-Windows-7), and while Win8 does seem to boot a little faster than Windows 7 does, "from scratch", it doesn't seem to offer much of an improvement overall.
I actually have been rarely booting the tablet (usually just let the tablet sleep), so the boot speed difference probably doesn't mean much to me.
Also, I've seen comments that the TIP is suppose to be better in Win8, but I haven't noticed that either.
Plus, it seems like, when I'm in Win8, even when I start in Metro, I mostly end up back at the Win8 desktop for doing stuff (I use the tablet a lot for viewing Flash videos, which aren't supported in the Metro IE).
It's interesting learning about the various gestures in Metro, but other than that, I'm having a hard time "getting" why I'd want to move to Win8, whenever it does get released.
So, maybe I'm missing something?
