This is the future, and the open source community could have done it technically - but not marketing wise. This will be a blow to Microsoft.

This is the beginning of the end of the MS dominated era.

It is not made for a small minority of OS jugglers like us. It is targeted at the world majority of would-be users who are (mentally and financially) challenged by the present majority OS.
