Windows 8 developer version out, the metro apps interest me because they can be written in html and javscript. This is a very different path for windows, and good luck to them with this. It looks like a bit of a gamble at this point, but its worth keeping an eye on.

"We took everything that was great about Windows 7 and made it even better."

The last time they said that they were taking everything great about XP and mutating it into the the steaming pile of festering puss crap that is Vista.


The auto complete at the Start screen reminds me of the new Google I think should earn some programmers a trip straight to hell.

Integrated with social networking sites?

More clouds? Looks like rain today. Not a fan of clouds.

(I'm responding as I watch.)

As long as they keep using integrated cards their graphics will suck.

Why are they calling that tablet a pc?

Is it me or are those guys... ummm... fubulously metrocheery?

"Every single one of the apps we showed you... none of them are shipping with Windows 8."

So, WTF does Windows 8 do besides use apps, developed by unpaid college interns, that don't come with it?


I'll keep 7.

Sorry, I've become rather skeptical of Microsoft. No one is as good at releasing unfinished, buggy software as they are.

I'm a very recent convert to Apple. I don't believe there's any going back for me.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.

I would convert if I could afford it.

Honestly, I kinda like Win7.

I agree Kreeper, I use both MAC and Win 7, and 7 is at least for me, as good as mac os. I'm skeptical of 8 as well, but as a the Metro apps are interesting because they can be written in html and java. The potential exists to do some pretty exotic things with that, or it could be a flop.
Seems every other Windows edition is awful, but even Octo who used MAC OS for years says 7 is as good. Mac works well right out of the box though, no need for drivers etc that you have with Windows, I totally understand why you prefer it from that standpoint Bohica.

"The Microsoft Windows Engineering Team has announced that the Metro interface web browser in Windows 8 will not support plug-ins.

Adobe Flash included.

Users will still be able to open a traditional browser interface to make use of legacy sites that rely upon plug-ins.

This news follows a recent blog post by the Internet Explorer 10 team pushing the use of HTML5 video as a replacement to Flash video.

With Google, Apple, Mozilla, Opera and other major players already backing HTML5
is Adobe Flash finally dead?"
