    Ok, enough 'I think it's great' answers. If you want to participate in this discussion, please elaborate your thoughts, otherwise your answers will be considered fluff, and this thread might be closed.

    Trying the Office 15 beta on Windows 8 atm, if Windows is losing Aero and will be like Office then I quite like it. Simple, minimalist but easy to find everything you need.

    Windows 8 will come with some new attractive features, such as- Advanced touch screen input, windows stores (online application store) metro style, Picture password or face recognition, multiple desktop, improved taskbar, boot security etc.

    One thing I would like to see Win 8 being able to do is something they do in the film Avatar in one scene a scientist is looking at a scan image on his computer terminal, he slides the image off his computer screen with his hand and it re-appears on his tablet computer. If you have two devices running win8 and you could do that it would be nice (probably would be useful in large office environments)

    Skip to about 1:18 in the clip and you'll see what I mean

    I personally if I can will not even consider migrating over to win8 until it gets its first service pack release and there are no major bugs as a result of that service pack

    Rumor is that MS won't sell full retail copies of win 8... Only upgrades. Though full OEM versions should still be sold which were cheaper than retail anyway.

    It did get me thinking, why doesn't MS just stop with the 'upgrade' bull and sell only the full version instead of the other way around.

    This is what hyped me up.

    http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/b...for-39-99.aspx

    What I'm looking for in Windows 8 is an operating system that has a lot less system file space requirement. I find it sad to look at my main hard disk's free space just after installing Win 7 Pro on my laptop.

    I haven't tried yet experiencing the BETA of windows 8 but as for me, I'd prefer to use windows 7.

    I have no idea if Windows 8 will be able to do that. But I do know they have had that concept functionality with the Microsoft Surface (the table computer), pulling data from mobile devices and back again in a very graphical way like they show case in movies.
