Windows An Italian Windows site called "Windowsette" has published some purported secret Microsoft documents outlining some design and strategy plans for Windows 8. The Microsoft Kitchen blog has provided some analysis of the documents. The documents appear genuine, and there's lots of interesting information there.

I wouldn't mind Windows getting an app store, so long as I can still install whatever I wish to alongside it. A similar idea to the Android market I think would work fine.


Yup, that's probably the best way to go about it. By default, the OS only allows installs from the app store, unless you go into options and check allow installing from outside sources. This should prevent 98% of users from hurting themselves, while allowing geeks and power users to install whatever they want.
