Windows It's 2am here (edit: I'm done writing, it's 2:38am now), and I really ought to be sleeping right about now, but for some stupid arbitrary reason, the D9 conference is held at honestly irresponsible hours for us Europeans (and we rock, damnit). So, here I am, MacBook Air on my lap, camomile tea (the Empress of Teas) in my cup, because Microsoft just had to show Windows 8's new interface for the first time at this ungodly hour. Oh, and they unveiled some more interesting stuff about Windows 8. Update: The videos from D9 are up. Mossberg talking to Steve Sinofsky, and the Windows 8 demonstration by Larson-Green.

I dunno. Interface is optimized for tablets, looks strange on a desktop. Windows was good for running classic apps. It looks cool on demo, but I can't imagine how it will work in corps with their old inhouse software. Looks like the end of old Windows era, but the new Windows is a new unknown thing. Risky movement.
