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.

Exactly...

It reminds me of HP's iMac wannabe touch screen computers, that had this rather nice looking, touch enabled UI - right until the point when you had to get any 'real' work done, and you were back to good old Windows ...

So touch based or not; I don't buy this duality as being a viable and efficient interface concept ... -Sorry, Redmond!
