Only a few changes? They reworked everything. There's never been a more aggressively optimized Windows release. For once I won't have to run through the list of services and disable what I don't need on a netbook install. It takes care of that for you.
This is going to be like sandybridge. Most are totally blah on the changes because they haven't been paying attention. Once they see everybody running it, particularly without metro, adoption rate will take off.
