There's a lot of potential win in this on a touchpad, but heck, it took me 2 minutes to figure out how to shut it down
OEM's will tout this as the fastest/bestest/save_your_soul OS ever for a while and the average user who only powers on, checks email and coupons and shuts down, is going to hate it.
Not to mention those who run multiple monitors, or working on multiple spreadsheets or photoshop projects, etc.
Seriously, if you can, run Win 8 on 2-3 monitors. Tell me how long it takes you to pull your hair out.
