Windows 8: first impressions

Yesterday I've completed my new Windows 8 Enterprise Edition installation. The system is very fast and stable.
The boot process takes about 30 seconds to bring up the Windows 8 "start" screen and the shutdown process is even faster. When I was using Windows 7 the shutdown process was about 3/4 minutes to completely detach / unmount / shutdown all my connected devices.

All is running good, and Windows 8 has recognized almost all devices without the need to install any driver (just my old multifunction printer Canon Pixma MP150 was not correctly recognized... but driver for Windows 7 worked like a charm).

Well done Microsoft! Now I'm waiting for Microsoft Surface!
