Windows Windows 8 will be one of the most significant releases for Microsoft ever, since it pretty much rethinks the entire graphical user interface. One of the problems I personally see with Metro is that it doesn't appear to be particularly conducive to getting actual work done. In an interview with The Verge, Microsoft design director Steve Kaneko confirmed that it's hard to adapt applications like Office to use Metro.

The Metro platform doesn't worry me too much, as long as they keep the posibility of running legacy/classical alongside Metro apps.

What worries me though is the aparrent gap between ARM and X86 versions of Windows 8. I really want a tablet with the ability of running legacy x86 applications.
