Ok, if they seriously got rid of the Destktop, I am going to be pissed.. Sure it looks nice and flashy, but I don't want nice and flashy (that's what apple is for), I want efficient and basic (for that what an OS should be, to manage files and run programs)..

I think that this new OS is going to be great for people that don't know what is going on and just want the simplicity of a smart phone... Blah..

Well yeah, but the thing MS had over apple was functionality over flashy bullshit... So now they seem to be trading in the cards, which is smart for them because it advertises better to the average person who may only know the super super basics of how to operate a computer...

Personally, I think it's crap, I miss win98..

Windows 98 and 2000 - was amazing
Windows ME - was an epic fail
XP - was amazing.
Vista - was an epic fail.
Windows 7 - was/is amazing.
Windows 8? Hmm, it's only natural to assume for the worst :p.

great point LionDebt. I am just loosing faith in the consumer market is all.. People are way to interested in flashy crap that makes no sense (and I guess I can't hate on it because I haven't tried it, but I want functionality damnit!)

LD, you are wrong. ME was the epic fail. Win2k was the most stable, and awesome version of windows up to that point.

Apple have a lot to answer for, with their retard-centric user base attitude.

EDIT: I retract the Apple statement above. I just hate the way Microsoft are copying Apple in some ways rather than innovating. Apple products are fine if that's what you want.

I could see this actually being nice if it was optimized and everything so the flashy crap didn't have to be turned off for anything like rendering or gaming. Not that i prefer the new UI to the old or anything, it's just that surely completely rebooting the UI would mean having to rewrite a lot of ancient code that must be weighing down previous versions?

win8 will be fine.

support for non-x86 (arm) processors is a step in the right direction.

i'm with nik on this.

2000 was a hell of an os. 7 is a hell of an os too.

8? is going to be the best yet. without question. dont worry your little self; the desktop is still there just not on mainstage anymore.

I will be interested to see what the effect of having an ARM-based option for Windows will be. How many vendors will code for ARM chips? Will software be able to be ported from ARM<->086?

entirely up to the software vendor (it's just a recompile in most cases). we'll support both.

same here, i'm really interested where arm will push things because they have the os support now...

it'll at least level the field for intel/amd with arm. competition always leads to us benefiting.

One thing that I will say is that Win8 will pretty much be the glue that holds everything together. By that I mean, it will be such a sinch to sync mobile devices and network everything together since Mobile devices are pretty much stepping up to the plate with computers.

For this I am excited for (although I don't have any mobile devices to sync).... Slowly it seems like most consumer tech is coming together and becoming more friendly when it comes to communication with one another.

I bet you in 2 years I'll be able to take a crap, walk to my living room Mothership computer and flush my damn toilet.

Edit: and by none 86x processors you mean 64 bit processors, right?

don't think arm have 64 bit processors yet so you won't want an arm based workstation until they add that.

I might as I don't need > 4 GB.
