I have it on one machine and can't see much use for it.
It's "heavier" than 7.
The Metro interface is terrible.
I don't like the task bar changes.
It would be garbage on a tablet. And why anyone would want a tablet with Win 8 when Android Peanut Butter is so freaking awesome is beyond me.

I love Windows 7 too much to want to switch. I'm getting my mom a new laptop for Christmas and I'm not getting her a Windows 8 machine either.
