Windows A long - very long - blog post justifying all the ideas and choices behind Windows 8. We've all been here before, but it's nice to have it all summed up once again for easy reference in case we hit another yes/no debate on Windows 8 and keyboard and mouse. Anywho, the most interesting bit is that Microsoft has updated the theme of the traditional desktop, flattening it to achieve a very nice look.

You folks seem to possess quite a funny taste ;) Anyway, if it would remain like that, but Metro would be an option easily switched on/off with a settings in Control Panel, I'd even befriend this "nice" flat thing ;)

Thought it was only Apple with the 'reality distortion field' .........I was stunned by the 'nice look', flat it certainly is; flat, boring and without any elegance whatsoever.
