It's an interesting approach. I don't think it will be successful commercially but it looks well executed and could be useful for power users.

Nice, a good OS to put on my windows tablet maybe?

Except Windows 8 on my tablet is already way more efficient than Ubuntu...

Assuming your Windows 8 tablet lets you put something else on there. Seems some of these tablets have really locked down boat loaders. :(

I'm running a Windows 7 tablet that I put Windows 8 on. MSI Windpad 110W, running AMD's Z-01 chip.

I'm pretty stoked for those releases tomorrow. Want to see some details and some walkthrough videos of various application, but I could see myself switching.

That looks pretty sweet. I would give it a try on my GS3 just to test out. I don't own a tablet, even though I want one. Unfortunately I have no use for it.
