Really? I admit I haven't read any reviews, but I have a tablet that came with Windows 7, and was terrible. I installed the consumer preview of Windows 8 on it, and I like it. It boots in about 8 seconds, and is pretty darn smooth. I admit, however, that I have not really put it through its paces, because I'm too enamored of my new iPad.
