I will wait and see how Win8 fair in the new era of personal computing because MS was losing its grip in the concept of personal computing for a long time.

Personally I am not impressed with Win8 and WinPh8. But, at least MS is trying to get back to the personal computing crowd. It will take a long time to get back the lose of those next-gen personal computing market, but, if MS is able to keep improving Win8 and WinPh8 at agile pace, I think MS can still maintain its place in consumer OS market.
