Many of the 11 features listed don't apply to the way I use a computer.
Task Manager - There's been a task scheduler in Windows since at least 2K. My cursory glance at the one in W8 didn't reveal any radical new features, just new ways to access the old ones. Besides, I rarely schedule tasks on client systems; just on servers.
IE 10 - I'm a Firefox guy. I've disliked IE since 7; I don't like the lack of customization of the controls and buttons.
Multiple Storage Devices - I don't know what that one means. I've had multiple devices at least since W98 added USB support, but I assume this doesn't refer to a feature that old. I don't use much drive space anyway.
Hyper-V, Metro, Desktop search, SkyDrive, Windows 2 Go - don't care, and weren't HyperV and SkyDrive available in W7?
These top features may well be worth the 'steep learning curve' for many users, but they still have no attraction for me.
