Windows I'm swamped with real-world work at the moment, so you'll have to settle for this quickie: the consumer preview for Windows 8 has been released. Go get it and report in what you find!

Who was the moron who wrote that? Of course "legacy" software... all software really will be placed on the START SCREEN. it replaced the start menu.

His point is that using it as a replacement of the start menu for legacy applications is an absolutely terrible idea, for reasons which are made obvious by the following screenshot:

If you start typing the app name it comes straight up.

The same interface works find on my android phone and nobody complains ... but on Windows, everyone is up in arms.

On android, each app doesn't install 5 or 6 useless icons named "uninstall myapp", "myapp readme", "configure myapp", "myapp website", "myapp updater" and such crap.

Also, android is not a desktop ui designed to be used with a touchscreen, which is ridiculous beyond words.
