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.

Maybe the blog entry is indeed PR, but that's because the "Windows 8 sucks" cult would have folks believe that the decisions made in creating Windows 8 were made with absolutely no good reasoning whatsoever.

Of course there were good reasons, the biggest one being to create more work to keep UI designers employed.
