    Not so easy for 46% of us, like me... I went for Ne6

    What's wrong with Qxf6 instead of Rxf6?

    Qxf6 would lose you your queen, while Rxf6 has the rook covered by your queen, while also threatening with checkmate through Rh6

    After the rook takes I don't think there would be anyway to defend against the mate on h5.

    bbann3r - you aren't missing anything. Position analysis shows that of the three moves available to black Kh8 results in a mate in 5. Kf8 (your suggestion) is the best move (+24 c/f +32 for Kh7).  In these puzzles after the first move (which is often a blunder) the computer usually but NOT always plays the best move. We always have to play the best move. You are correct Kf8 is the best available move, but the computer is not expected to always play the best move.
