Cheers @Arthur - I want to give Windows 8 a shot, but after an hour with it on Friday night, it's not winning me over! So obviously not designed with traditional keyboard and mouse use in mind
Right, metro is definitely not for keyboard and mouse, so using the classic shell and enjoying it. Much prefer it to metro, and it feels like server 2k8r2 on a laptop!!! :-)
I still dont get why they dont release a tablet version and a desktop version.
There is no real reason to integrate the two that I can see. One size fits all isnt always the best option.
They are doing an Xbox beta test by November!!!!
First Impressions not really inspiring, Like to see the allmost polished Beta/RC version.
Do we know if Windows 8 will run on Arm Processors?
I hope that they fix the start menu on the desktop, It would be nice to have a 'Metro button' as well as the old fashoned Start Menu.
Overall Metro looks quite sleek, and a (good) touch version of windows that fits in with our existing network will be a welcome addition to the tools at my disposal.
Unlike most people I like the ribbon in explorer - most screens are big enough now to cope with the added toolbar. I'm not sure on the selection of tools though.
I am wondering about the metro app store, and how we will be able to purchase/distribute programs?
