Windows A long - very long - blog post justifying all the ideas and choices behind Windows 8. We've all been here before, but it's nice to have it all summed up once again for easy reference in case we hit another yes/no debate on Windows 8 and keyboard and mouse. Anywho, the most interesting bit is that Microsoft has updated the theme of the traditional desktop, flattening it to achieve a very nice look.

Never a fan of Aero

I think that Microsoft may have a bipolar disorder.

I was not a fan of Aero glass anyway. The transparency just made it hard to read things... but this swings too far the other way. I did not think you could have something that is both stark and cluttered at the same time.
