Windows Today, at Microsoft's BUILD conference in Anaheim, California, Microsoft unveiled the biggest overhaul of Windows since Windows 95. The venue was not coincidental; in the same city, in 1993, during the first Professional Developers Conference, Microsoft unveiled Windows 95 for the first time. Steven Sinofsky, supported by an army of Microsoft executives, demonstrated a whole boatload of things for Windows 8, and make no mistake, they had a lot to show. Two important notes: the Windows 8 Developer Preview will be free to download later today (no activation, will be updated regularly, and includes the new interface), and Win32 is the past.

I'm confident this is good under the hood. But the GUI is typical insaneo modern Microsoft. Whatever schizoid is currently in power has thrown out the start menu. Awesome. Sorry guys, we went down the wrong path... for 10 years.

People said the same about gnome shell and I agree with them. why suddenly change a direction that was working?
