I certainly aren't hearing much real-world buzz about Windows 8 or the Surface tablets.

Of course, for the tablets, it may be because they had a big announcement months ago, which has allowed plenty of time for people to forget about them (or write them off as the same vaporware as the last time MSFT announced a major tablet initiative). They should really take a page from Apple's playbook and wait until closer to launch to start announcing these things. That way, they'd only have to keep the buzz going for about a week to 10 days between the announcement and the actual launch.
