    I think Windows 8 is very good, but I prefer Ubuntu.

    I don't think Windows 8 will drive anyone away, and I also think the tight phone-tablet-PC integration could help them find traction in non-PC markets...

    The UEFI System Partition that's on the drive and all the hoops one has to jump thru just to install any Linux distro alongside of it it will be interesting to say the least-

    Another reason why UEFI is evil, it just keeps adding on to its pro microsoft worship list.

    What would you prefer? BIOS?!?

    GPT is required for big drives anyway, not just UEFI.

    Agreed. BIOS lasted 30 freaking years. It's not supposed to last that long, but it did. UEFI is superior to BIOS in everyway possible.

    I also think this. The problem is that most of the people don't know about free alternatives, so I think that, if some of them keep unknowing about Linux, they'll switch to Mac... But Windows 8 is good for FOSS, I'm sure the number of users will increment
