The big problem seems to be concerns for mobile platforms, as battery life is cited as a major reason (along with security).

Windows 8 is shaping up to be a bold move for Microsoft.  Will it make me an Apple user on my desktop?  Will Windows 7 become the new “Windows 98” (people still never acknowledge Windows ME ever happened)?
