Ugh please let this be their tablet or something, if this is desktop I'm out. Touch screen on a desktop is the worst idea ever, try holding your had up to touch that screen for even 5 minutes, it's a horrible idea.

The OS in that video has ZERO chance of being accepted at work. We'll keep our users on Windows 7 for sure.

I don't understand why more people don't see it that way. Google did the same thing by creating Honeycomb. MS needs this sort of thing if it wants to compete in the market of tablets.
