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.

Apple setting the OS bar too low!

After all the "wonderful things" Apple implemented in its iPhone, iPad and family: FaceTime, the multitouch interface, "multitasking", its AppStore and so on.... I wonder what is now called "Operating System"?

I used to know that OS is the thing that makes the computer work: handles memory, processes, threads, IPC, hardware and so on... Is all that stuff history and now the innovations on OSes will be like: "Windows now can upload your photos to Facebook and send messages to your Twitter account"? or "You can move your photos with your fingers in your desktop"? Sad, very sad.
