To throw it into perspective, it is only 26 builds higher than the leaked 7959 windows 8 build. The main presentation was to show off what they've been doing in terms of tablet and touch, it also happens to run on desktop pcs, which they also stressed, specifically to hush all hardcore windows users. That's all i got from the conference. And they are basically telling you to wait until the BUILD conference to get all the IMPORTANT details. Why are people so dense?
I came to OCN thinking that I will be among smart, rational.
Boy was I wrong.
OCN has as many irrational people as they do rational
Na, I jest, but seriously though, people need to learn how to think.

You know, its going to be interesting to see how Windows 8 and ARM is going to turn out once its released. I wonder whats going to happen to all those who go out and buy a ARM based netbook/laptop/tablet with Windows 8, and find out they can't run any software since its all x86.
