... why am I hoping Windows 8 and Surface top the list of Turkey's...
 
No Jason. You call a turkey when it is a turkey.  

Windows 8 is a horrible mess. Surface is way  overpriced. They get thrown into the Turkey pile now, not later. 
 
I disagree with your opinion on Windows 8. Sorry. 
 
SJVN and I agree on many things, but on Microsoft-related technologies, we differ.
 
FWIW, I think the Surface RT is clearly a turkey, but it's still early days and not many people have seen this yet. Windows 8, to me, is clearly a turkey on the desktop, but I'm willing to give it a "wait and see: on tablets and smartphones. 
 
I've called the Surface RT strictly a developer and early adopter device. I wouldn't classify it as a turkey, because this is clearly where the future of the Windows platform is headed. You can put Windows 8 and Surface RT in the same position that Windows NT 3.1 occupied 20 years ago.
 
+1 on Gnome 3: I've rediscovered Windows 7 since Gnome 3. Even Unity is better than plain Gnome 3, but they both suck so bad it has stop any and all forward progress I made with Linux. 
 
+1 on Android for Facebook. I've always hated Facebook. Android is a close second place. The two together sicken me.
