Windows An Italian Windows site called "Windowsette" has published some purported secret Microsoft documents outlining some design and strategy plans for Windows 8. The Microsoft Kitchen blog has provided some analysis of the documents. The documents appear genuine, and there's lots of interesting information there.

Yup, that's probably the best way to go about it. By default, the OS only allows installs from the app store, unless you go into options and check allow installing from outside sources.


You mean like 99% of the Linux distributions out there?

Probably since it is yet another "me too" technology from Microsoft.

Companies always come out with "new" technologies, and I personally think it is good to remind people who don't have a firm grasp of the obvious, that there's nothing new here at all.
