I don't think I like this direction. I don't want all that junk interfering with my work. Also, who wants to use Microsoft's maps or search with Bing or buy from their app store? Not me.
The following statement doesn't make me happy;
Windows 8 supports up to five simultaneous touch points, so if your hardware doesn’t, you may find typing on the onscreen keyboard and using certain controls more of a challenge.
Ugh - I'm not buying new hardware again and I'm not buying an OS that is challenging to work with a mouse. I will always use a mouse on my PC because I need pixel-precise control of my pointer and a touchpad is more cumbersome when you need that kind of control. I find using the trackapd on my Mac takes more time, causes more fatigue, and way more frustration than my mouse does.
Lastly, Win8 looks like my Xbox's interface. I don't want to work everyday in an Xbox environment.
