Microsoft’s BUILD conference has thrown up plenty of info on the new Windows 8 operating system, not least of all how the platform will look when it hits tablets.

We’d yet to see a direct comparison against the tablet trend-setting iPad however. That is until now we mean. WinRumours have put together a video lining up the devices side by side, going into great depth over the course of ten minutes as to how the Windows 8 OS works compared to its iOS rival, detailing it’s customisation options and how the “Live Tiles” first seen in Windows Phone 7 devices have been tweaked and tailored to fit a new tablet home.

Got to admit it, Windows 8 is looking pretty darn slick. Microsoft may well have got their cool back. That is, if they ever had it in the first place. There’s mountains of potential here.

Not so sure about that brown carpet though.
