Overall im quite impressed with the way Windows 8 is shaping up. A few months ago i would have told people not to bother "its just a refresh of windows 7" but ive changed my tune, theres a lot of good features going into 8. I am in love with the storage spaces, this will be great! I will definitely put that to good use.
The system refresh/reset would cut a lot of my workload in half as well, i do atleast 1 reload a day at the moment.
Built in 3g support?! yes please, goodbye horrible tstick/vodem drivers (happens to be the reason for most of my reloads lately!)

Yeah new features are looking nice, not convinced on the metro ui for desktop/workstation/laptop usage though.

Just disable metro though, although I am keen to see how they've moved on since the developer preview with Metro on the desktop.
