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 know that, but you must admit that touchscreens easily end up looking quite ugly after a few months of use.

And since there's electronics underneath, you can't use anything but a dry piece of tissue to wipe that, which in turn is not fantastically effective.

There's a reason why some people are maniac about people who touch their computer screen : newer screens attract stain and make it stick.
