NOTHING. Nothing at all really, just lots of nice features removed versus a few useless toys added (and to be fair, some good things too, but the cons greatly surpass the pros). I tried the betas early on, and was really disappointed seeing a crippled OS designed specifically for a tablet advertised as being good for a PC. Not for me.

There is one legitimate use that I should look in the future. As I'm a developer, I'm supposed to test my programs on a variety of OSs, and that will include Win8, once people start downgrading to it, just to make sure it doesn't breaks anything. I guess most stuff will work flawlessly if it used to work on Win7 however, since they both uses the same kernel from Vista with a few eye candy differences only.
