So Windows 8 works great on the ST5022...even aero!!! I am still working on getting the hang of the apps, really want to keep using google chrome so have to figure out how to add that to the app widgets. Issues: it only recognizes the default intel graphics driver so have to figure out how to get it to recognize the correct one. On W7 this was a painful ordeal. Buttons - almost all of the buttons don't work...downloading drivers now. Heat - seems W8 keeps the CPU pegged, may change after all the updating, thus the tablet is bottom warm...not hot. I'll keep updated and post to youtube once I get it all working.
