Windows 8 is designed and optimised for use with a touch screen and is has huge difference in the way the Graphics User Interface looks, feels, and works you need to be aware of that. If what you're thinking of getting is a touch screen tablet or you use a touch screen tablet or smart phone a lot, then it won't be much of a change to go to Windows 8, if you don't use such a system a lot, get prepared for a case of culture shock.

However, don't forget that there are other options to going for the latest Microsoft offering as well, one of them may be better suited for you, that will depend on what you see as your mission critical software. Also, not all software that runs on Win XP will run on Win 8 or even Win 7, you should check that out first as well.
