    I have been using the Windows 8 Consumer Preview for a while now. I think we can all agree that the Consumer Preview is MUCH better than the Developer Preview, but there is still some improvement that needs to be done. First, I want Microsoft to let us customize Metro more by default. They don't even let us set a wallpaper. Also, I wish that the Windows Store would get the type of scrolling that the start screen has (where you can move the cursor to the right or left of the screen and the start screen will move with it). Also, if you plug in a device, the notification at the top says tap to change settings, even when I am on a laptop that doesn't have a touchscreen. That is kind of annoying because I don't have a touchscreen. Besides those things, Windows 8 is a great os! I am amazed at how fast and stable it is for a beta! If they can fix the things I mentioned above, then I will probably upgrade to Windows 8.

    If the two interfaces can mesh and work together, Windows 8 will be a blast to use.

    Speaking of interfaces, once the user realizes that they do not need to constantly have the UI controls in front of them all the time and instead focus on the content at hand, while realizing all the normal controls are STILL there; Windows 8 will be a success.

    I'd imagine first generation hardware would have little decals for all of the gestures.
