Windows 8 is most likely the best Windows ever as work as PC+Tablet, Mouse/Keyboard+touch
win7 shutdown: go to startbutton and click, go to shutdown choice and click. done. NO searching for corner areas to pop up charms bars.
win8 shutdown: go to corner, hope charms bar get activated, find power choice and click, click again to shutdown. There are workarounds and 3rd party shells, just sayin they could have done better. It is quick booter though and IE10 is nice. The Apple and Android tile system is better and more intuitive, shocker. Remember when Intel was even bad mouthing Win8 ? That was strange.
