Tried both the review and final product in virtualbox and could never get it working properly. I think my problem was with the emulation not the product. After upgrading to 8GB of ram, my pc runs pretty fast overall. Windows 7 is plenty right now for me, and I don't require touch functionally right now.

I've been using Windows 8 exclusively on my home computers since it was in RC. Seems to run a bit quicker, boot times are drastically improved. New copy window and task manager provide far more information which is nice.

the task manager is nicely improved i will admit. the added ability to manage startup processes from the task manager was a good idea too
