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.

Many reviews were critical of the release because to use it effectively required one of those oft-criticized mice.

Right at the start of the article they are really really trying to convince me that people thought mice were stupid. My first computer was an atari with a mouse and the OS was made for a mouse. This was about 1985 but this 'blog' wants to claim that even in 1990 most people would look down on mice.
My prediction for the article: they want to compare mouse skepticism with touch interface skepticism.

It is a really defense article. They must get A LOT of complaints about W8.
Vista gets the shortest mention and only mentions aero.
