I can't say I'm happy with what I've seen so far of Windows 8. I don't want tiles on my desktop, and I don't want a ribbon instead of menu + buttons. Looks like I'm going to stay with Windows 7.

I liked what i was seeing in the keynote today
native ISO support, mount isos, browser them... same with other image files.
better mulit monitor support
hyper V standard
updated task manager
....I don't like the finger area but they are showing most of that stuff cause that is what is popular right now. If you don't want to see it you don't have to see it.
I can see this pretty much killing the ipad and android tabs pretty swiftly.

I don't want to learn so many new habits, time is money. I'll stick to what I'm familiar with, thanks.

iPad and iPhone are a status symbol like Sony was a while back. But they may sell more while not eating much in Apple's share.
Android? Not sure. Amazon's upcoming tablet is apparently a total fork and not compatible so not sure if it's Android. Then they are issues with patents that MS might exploit to get them to use Windows instead of Android. Samsung failed miserably I heard, sold less than 20k out of a million shipped and both AAPL and MSFT are after them for patents, or protection money ;)
Their biggest drawback is timing, this is a year away apparently, and that's half of a lifetime in that area.

I think it sounds great and plan to install the developer version on one machine to see what it can do.
I am sure it will take some getting used to, but if it has a lighter footprint, is faster and more user friendly then I am all for it.

The build release is pretty amazing. I installed it on w500 and it runs great. Wish i could have gotten my hands on the samsung handed out at Build though
