What's funny here is that I prefer Win8 on my laptop to Win8 on my development machine.  The primary reason for that is that my dev machine has 2 monitors and the primary monitor is oriented vertically.  Metro apps on a single 1600x900 panel are really nice (I burned out 5 video cards on my old dev machine trying to get a 3rd monitor working on it so I'm not about to go there again).

To be clear: I like Win8 on both machines (a lot), I just prefer it on my laptop.
