[Engadget]Microsoft unveils Windows 8 - Page 14

post #131 of 239
I like it, but it feels too soon. Well i guess we still have a while. I usually jump right on all the new Windows versions, but they did very well with Windows 7 and I cant see myself upgrading any time soon, but who knows. Maybe thats why they dont make a purposely perfect OS. Cuz then who would buy upgrades?

Time to invest in a touch screen monitor...?

I like it, but again, it's too soon. It should be released as a "Spin-Off" of the true Windows 8, maybe for OEM manufacturers of touch/tablet PC's.

We should note that "Windows 8" is just a codename for what we're seeing here -- "we'll figure out the real name in due time," Sinofsky told the crowd -- but we don't see much harm in calling it Windows 8 for now.
Are you serious? They scared me to death right there.

Hmm dunno about the whole touch new policy for every windows, maybe we will be able to turn that start screen with touchable things off. One thing i really would like to see on Win8 would be the ability to customize the main bar without messing with the explorer.dll and such, but again is too soon, maybe we will have something like that

Please tell me I can change the purple start area? Even then, I think it looks quite bad. I think the buttons are too big. I like icons, not huge rectangles and squares.

Touch screens are going to become a lot more popular, so I can understand why they are using this UI.

From the video, you can clearly see there is still a W7 style OS under the new "touch style" UI.

I like it. It shows microsoft is thinking future, and not just sticking with their tried and true OS.
