As long as I never have to deal with the awful 'mobile tile system' they implemented I'll be okay. So awfully ugly, just let me keep a nice clean interface without the need for your bloat!

i still prefer WINDOWS in my OS as well as background if it's purely optional possibly maybe but if it has an xbox 360 emulator that would really sweeten the deal.

Do you people HONESTLY think Microsoft will drastically change their GUI after Windows 7 has done so well?

"every app on your PC"
"every app"
"app"

Well let me run my Steam app and launch the Counter Strike app from there. Maybe replace my Firefox app with the Chrome app.

Also, it looks like W8 will have a built in W7 VM.

If this works with Kinect, I´ll consider it.

It will be awesome, works as keyboard free and swaps to regular windows OS.
