"This growing app catalog also offers compatibility with legacy x86 apps to give Windows 8 a range of titles and functionality that competitors -- particularly those in the tablet space -- simply cannot match."

Cudos Michael. Your comment above is a KEY takeaway that I think the vast majority are missing the point about. Win8 is a way to take what you already have and continue to build a new future with it as well. I think it is shameful for those who choose to be ignorant of the facts to continue to diss on the platform.
