    From Paul Thurrott's winsupersite.com

    This might be intended to make it more compatible with a tablet display.

    Wow that is really interesting. They have changed from a light blue to a dark blue strip at the top of the screen.

    :rolleyes:

    It's not a great screen shot and you may have to look closely to see it but the area encircled in red illustrates one of the changes - the 3D-looking elements we've long been used to will be rendered flat and featureless.

    Me original post was an attempt at cynical sarcasm mate. I will only buy and use 8 if I have no other choice for quality gaming. :fool::D

    No prob Abarbarian that's cool :) And same here, I only use Windows for gaming any more anyway, though I have a feeling that Win8 or a similarly looking descendent will be in our futures ultimately - some future Direct-X version will likely require it etc. Anyway it' going to be interesting to watch ;)
