It's sad that so many dumb ass people care what Oprah thinks. She is about as out of touch as you can get, with real people. The queen probably uses her tab more thsn Oprah

This is a fail. The very least the person who tweeted this for oprah could have done is used the mobile twitter website instead of the twitter app, LOL.

lol....epic fail! its just that, its really hard to understand the gestures of windows 8! it looks amazing as iPad coz of its premium bodies (aluminum and magnesium vs plastics? which one you'll choose?) but the gestures are annoying.... but we can learn.... but still hoping that microsoft will not competely implement the metro UI on all device! coz doing the same gestures on mouse is super duper annoying!

Just downloaded Windows 8 on my PC...so far so good. It's taking some getting used to w/the tiles but the overall experience seems to be a lot smoother than previous versions. The gestures using a mouse are fine...it's like a smart phone on your PC screen. The biggest improvement is w/Internet Explorer not being so sluggish. It's more-so getting used to how everything is moved around & categorized.
