Windows It's 2am here (edit: I'm done writing, it's 2:38am now), and I really ought to be sleeping right about now, but for some stupid arbitrary reason, the D9 conference is held at honestly irresponsible hours for us Europeans (and we rock, damnit). So, here I am, MacBook Air on my lap, camomile tea (the Empress of Teas) in my cup, because Microsoft just had to show Windows 8's new interface for the first time at this ungodly hour. Oh, and they unveiled some more interesting stuff about Windows 8. Update: The videos from D9 are up. Mossberg talking to Steve Sinofsky, and the Windows 8 demonstration by Larson-Green.

Am I the only one that absolutely hates this?

Why is everyone so hell bent on turning every computer into an over glorified web browser? I dont know if anyone has realized that computers can do things other than browse the web and look at photos.

Because it's easier for the casual user..

A casual user can do all their stuff in a web browser(Using MS Office Web App, Facebook, GMail, and their companies in house web apps).

Plus you can set it to be just like Win7, it's not going to be like ChromeOS.
