Re: Win 8 as a digital darkroom platform on a desktop?

I'm using Windows 8 on a new computer.  I have a Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T tablet.  It uses a built in Wacom pen with 1028 degrees of pressure sensitivity.  It also works with a purchased full size Wacom pen.

CS6 works perfectly and having an on-screen Wacom pen is a pure joy.  Everything is faster than Windows 7 and I feel it is a definite improvement over Windows 7.  I attribute a good bit of the speed improvement to moving up to an I5 processor and an SSD instead of a slower physical hard drive.

I'm a long time Photoshop user and CS6 with Windows 8 on this tablet is the best Photoshop experience yet.
