Wow… Windows 8 Preview [video]

So, I guess this took me by surprise. It seems that Windows 7 just came out (wow – it’s been almost 2 yrs now). I have to say – I am pretty impressed by what I see of the new UI. Wow. Of course, we still have to deal with the underlying architecture – or do we? There are no real details about that yet. They do make a point in the video to mention that “because it’s a PC, it has a file system” – haha. Something else I think is interesting is that they are unifying their desktop and PC  experiences. When I first heard that, I wasn’t too thrilled – but after seeing it in action, I totally dig it (especially the thumb-keyboard for tablets). Video after the break.

    1. I wouldn’t say always… the detached menu bar thing is still a gripe I have with MacOSX. Also, in windows you can do file handling in ANY file-view dialogue box – not so in MacOSX – very annoying. Also, I much prefer a tree view when trying to access my apps over MacOSX’s icon view.
