I do like Windows 8 but on a tablet not a laptop.

Is the front page on Win8 customisable in any way? Perhaps to remove Social Networking links.

I'm using Win 8 in a home built headless server running Windows Home Server in a VM. It works really well as I'm able to run the Win 8 server as a media server (recording FIOS and serving it to around the network) and as a backup to all my PCs. Win 8 is much more flexible than Win 7 for my needs. Yes, I ignore the Metro interface.

I am pretty sure on the Surface you can remove most if not all links on the home screen.

I returned the Surface. It will probably be offered cheaper and I will see how things go with Windows 8.

Yes, it's highly customisable.
