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.

What's your point? We know Linux has repos for software distribution, but really, why pointing it out here is useful, I'll never know.

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.

Even MS says that they are following Apple here, did you read the article? They aren't claiming it's new, or innovative.

It's still a move forward, if they can get everyone involved. That's the hard part.
