1. Allow apps to access the OS/system

If Microsoft can't/won't/don't allow those two, they are doomed before they start. The tablet market has a big heard start, and Microsoft is way behind, just like their presence in the mobile phone market.
I would add to that: Price. I just bought a 32GB Nexus 7 purely based on price - for $230. For me it is just a little toy and I was not ready to spend $500 or more for that.

I like the Windows 8 style for things such as .. the Windows 8 Phone. really nice.

But on a desktop? Not so much. Didn't take the plunge either and still using and happy with Win7.
