Will SSD only users benefit from a flash centric OS like Windows 8?

    Obviously, it is made for tablets/phones, that implies the OS was built around knowing it would be using flash type speeds for reading/writing. So would owners of 1 SSD 0 HDD like myself, benefit from Windows 8?

    Yes, on boots, at least. You'll find out more on that specifically on upcoming motherboard reviews...

    As compared to what a guy without an SSD and only a spinner?

    Yes the SSD will be faster, but an HDD for storage shouldn't "cause" issues.
