I gotta say this is probably the best video I have seen regarding Windows 8 so far. Thanks for posting this.

Indeed, very good review. Hi-lighted exactly why I should stay away from it. Thanks.

Anyone want to just to tell us the results? According to the video, is Win 8 better, worse, or no major difference?

So it's of no great surprise that Windows 8 wins out in these tests. However, it's only by the narrowest of margins. the Nimbus results show that's it actually very easy to erode the performance back to Windows 7 levels - but that's still very very good. The best news is that it works and works really well and so performance is not a reason to shy away from Windows 8.
