Sounds promising. Hope a certain bay, that is filled with pirates will have it.

Windows 8 has its own virtual drive to mount ISO files in early M1 builds.
so does this mean we will be able to mount game ISO's so we dont need to have the disk in to play it?

Yes, you can mount your game to a virtual drive. I wonder what Microsoft were thinking though. They are just making pirating games easier .

Don't worry, those "tiles" will be only activated on a certain hardware, like tablets, etc.

They won't do this on PC aka sacrifice desktop os usability.

Windows 8 is allegedly going to support ARM cpus. Those tiles may be useful in tablet interfaces. The current Windows 7 UI is only suitable for convertible tablet with stylus.

I just wonder if the tablet OS version will be less bloated.

While I like Linux and have no problem with Android (have an Android and a Win Mobile phone in house) I would rather run an OS on a tablet I understand (Windows) rather than have to learn new commands, unless the new OS is a nightmare to work with.

I am excited about these features, though, and hope that the cloud nonsense is optional or crackable, because I have no intentions of handing all my personal data to MS and my net is unstable anyway. If it is mandatory I can't wait for MS to be flooded with compensation requests due to people losing connection while working on their documents and getting really angry.
ARM kills x86 for power efficient computing, MS is moving Windows 8 over to ARM as well as x86, it's pretty obvious they want to take on Chrome OS, iOS and Android on tablets as well as hopefully let ARM move more into the netbook space (The benefits would be great, similar if not higher performance for far less power used), Chrome OS doesn't require you to learn a lot of new commands, it may be Linux based but most of the stuff is stripped out anyway, chances are with the differences MS is planning in Windows 8, going to iOS, Android or Chrome OS on a tablet from Windows 7 would require just as much learning unless you really want to screw around with stuff, in which case tutorials make it very easy to learn.

Your crazy its primary target is ofcourse desktop's their corporate enterprise stuff is reason alone. They want to focus it as multi platform unified type of OS after all the kernel is only 30 some megabytes and they were talking in the beginning how it was so easily modifiable.

"Windows 8 user interface will change drastically depending on targeted hardware." has me somewhat concerned. I'll be honest, i still use Windows Classic theme, even on W7 Ultimate. I grew up with it, and so it's stuck.

This makes me feel like it'll be a feature they'll testdrive in W8, but it won't work well until W9 (a la UAC in Vista).

Sounds like it is one hell of an ambitious OS for Microsoft. I think all this competition from Google is starting to make them realize that they need to make some innovative products before they start to lose some serious market share in the not too distant future.

I am so happy Google pushed in to the mobile / tablet industry and is not making a netbook OS as it is providing some real competition for Microsoft and really pushing them in some cool directions. Windows 7 is good and if MS can keep it going Windows 8 is going to be... just wow!

The only thing that worries me is the push towards cloud computing and having people's data stored on the internet. I can see a lot of privacy violations in the future that will go unnoticed. Although maybe if they play their cards right they will be able to combat PC game piracy.... but at what cost? I'm rambling now.
