@cheong: Interestingly, of my friends and family who've moved to Windows 8 (about 5 people) all of them had positive experiences to report.  But since 5 people is hardly a significant statistical value in the set of "all people who are currently not using Windows 8" I'm not willing to go about parroting it as a huge success Tongue Out  I'm going to be moving to Win8 around March or April timeframe, so I'm interested to see how that goes for myself.
