i like iOS and Android but after seeing this video... windows 8 ruled them all... haha let's face it... we can't beat a full-featured OS. the world is shifting again just like in the past.

without its release, its just too early to say its the best. Windows 8 represents a progression or evolution in mobilie OS's. whether its better than iOS or android yet is premature. its not even released yet.

I think Windows 8 could fight off IOS and Android, but MS need to fill up their Apps Store then I will be definite give Window 8 try.

I don't think they're going to have to rely on an app store as heavily as Android and iOS because people will be using all their current Windows programs and applications.

It's what's in doubt. Regular windows programs need to be rebuild to work on tabs because of the processor architecture.

Plus Windows phone 7 apps will be able to run on windows computers which is a huge market.
I know iOS has Lion coming out, but it looks like with the tiles and stuff Windows is going to have phone apps and regular PC programs work together.
I like this a lot.

Yeah, it is kind of exciting, just wondering how much the price is going to be for tablets with that hardware that the developers got?? (I don't mean the $1100 value that they're saying either lol) Either way, it is something to really push the use of a tablet, if its platform it so commonly used by most average consumers on a daily basis. This sounds like a tablet I would buy, due to the simple fact of productivity. Server 2008 on a tablet anyone??

Well ... think it that way .. the developer tablet is with intel i5, 64gb ssd, 4gb ram ... so I guess that that tablet would cost ... a little fortune :)

I'm installing the Windows 8 preview now on one of my companies old computers (got permission to do that :)). It got a old celeron processor, if Win 8 runs fast on this, it will run fast on newe computers too. I'll report how it works when it is installed ; )

There is an incentive to get a tablet after all. Entertainment and productivity all in one. If anyone has ever watched Star Trek, this is the beginning of the future of portable pc/tablet. No more laptops and no more bulky desktops. One device, one integrated ecosystem.
