Looks pretty slick if you have a touch screen.

my, gone are the days where you turned on the BW TV and went to make a cup of tea while it warmed up ... 10mins was the norm.

I think its all down to the new fangled BIOS that PC's will be using soon (forget what its called, V_R will know, he has mentioned it before )


UEFI its called

What happens if you haven`t got a touch screen monitor for a desk top P.C. for example. Are MicroSoft bringing out compatible monitors or do we have to buy tablet pads?

From what I can see on the net, if you don't have a touch screen monitor or a tablet, you can disable the Metro UI and it will be as Windows 7 is. That said W7 has still got some good mileage left in it

Windows 8 looks pretty done. I am going to guess it is coming out before...hmm...July? I would be happy because my birthday is June 30. I bet it is going to cost a lot though...
