Bear, I love that!

But no, I have no use for Win8. It seems that Ms have read all the "reviews" that forecast the death of the PC, specifically the 'big Box' desktop that most of us use and like. Unfortunately, their crystal ball is not working as planned, much like their new O/s.

As has been said here, I will wait for Win 9. If it's better than 7, (difficult to envisage) then maybe I will upgrade. 7 does what I want it to do, flawlessly and consistently for the most part.
i think what people envisage as the death of the desktop is from watching to much star trek tbh, sure when every home has access to mainframe spec computers like tony stark does then maybe just maybe the desktop will be dead, or when we have tablet computers that can actually run proper full blown apps and use the same hardware as those mainframe computers or link in to use that hardware perhaps then the desktop will be dead.

right now tablets suck lets be honest here they are glorified internet access points you wouldn't use one to edit a movie so whats the point in them.

right now all i want is a tablet that can link to my own desktop that is effectivly just an extension of that desktop using my desktops hardware not it's own. then i'll be happy right now i see no point to tablets crappy hardware and restrictive operating systems.

believe me if i could i would start a company that makes just that.

No offense intended, but you're way off base. I personally have a Samsung tablet (a build slate) to tide me over until I purchase a new tablet (intel) running Windows 8 early next year. I use it daily to do all of the things my desktop can do when docked and attached to a nice large monitor (mostly development in visual studio), and it doubles as a tablet without a keyboard/mouse when I need it for watching media, playing games, and otherwise passing time in airports, on planes, or in hotels. Having one device that *can* do both saves me money and weight in my bag, for starters.

Actual tablets (phablets), when you're talking about actual work do indeed mostly stink at this. However, an ultrabook in a tablet format does indeed NOT suck at either. In fact, it's pretty amazing to think you *can* do both in one form factor (sometimes called a "tabtop").
