I'm not sure what speed has to do with it tbh. If that was all that mattered, everyone would be on Linux, but that isn't all that matters.
Then there's the fact that MS aren't even fighting against Linux in terms of what they are trying to achieve with W8. Even though Ubuntu as popular as it is, is now aiming for the same thing in terms of a unified experience across different types of device, they are not their competition.
MS have already stated and now proven that their rate of development will be increasing with 8.1 and they have also shown that the updates are not going to be thin on additions.
Like I said, not even Microsoft would have been expecting to be winning all of the things on their first attempt and just like all software, it has the capability to evolve/improve as needed.
Again, as 8.1 is already proving, what you see of Windows 8 today, will likely not be what Windows 8.X and further releases will turn out to be as matured versions of Microsoft's new design paradigm.
