Have both tablets
I wanted to share my thoughts, because I have all three Ipads, and also the Acer windows tablet, currently running Windows 8. Windows 8 is an embarassing joke. It is Zune front end (called metro) with the painfully bloated windows legacy stack. No more start button, insead you get to leave the desktop and go to a sliding metro box interface, pick a program and then go back to the desktop. Microsoft is caught between a rock and a hard place. Their only remaining value is legacy office apps, which is why they have to drag along the past. This leaves them unfit for the future where Apple has already arrived. Ipad is always two clicks from what I want. Windows 8 is a horrible merger of a cellphone and desktop interface, you still have a moust pointer trying to click all kinds of tiny little buttons and links. Not all flash plays in the new finger style browser. Not all drivers and software work with windows 8 - so the only good thing it could have offered - backwards compatibility - is crippled at best. It really an embarassment how far behind Apple Microsoft is, and it is due purely to arrogance. While Microsoft was busy making the next round of "dogfood" to force feed the customer, someone else was dilligently creating an entire "culture" of success and elegance. Microsoft is literally YEARS behind now, as a result of that arrogance and lack of concern for the customer.
