so long as I can:

windows key + r
windows key + e
windows key + f
windows key + pause/break

then I don't really care what it looks like so long as it doesn't require me to move my hands off the keyboard.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for innovation in user interfacing. But I'm not gonna actually use aforementioned innovation unless it's more efficient over quick, simple keyboard shortcuts...

Why should screens be rectilinear? There is no need. The difference between a screen and an interaction area is decreasing, for anyone else who has played with Microsoft Surface and other similar experiences, things are really changing

Too many lazy people not wanting to change. The world is changing. Get over it.

You remember how in the beginning you thought that touchscreen was too much of a hassle?

Yeah... These are nice gadgets. I'm sorry, but I don't see them as anything else, I mean, it's not like you're going to do anything productive with them.

If they get this in Win8, there will be some "classic interface", or they won't sell a single copy in any office or business.

I like the UI, for the stuff they were doing with it, but if they think they are going to replace the UI everyone has been using since Windows 95, they have another thing coming.

Yes and it's still a hassle. Human fingers are too large to do anything too precise on the screens. And yes, I've used quality touch screens, not just the trash ones found in a lot of places.

I still hate touch screen personally. Serously, how are you gonna get an office that has been using Win XP for the past 10 years calculating spread sheets on a 5 year old computer, too swtich to a touch screen based system.

From my experience, some thing like that is not gonna fly. There are people who I've met who own bussiness, that think having two monitors is a big deal. Now their office full of dowdy 40+ year old women can look at a spread sheet and e-mail at the same time.

Business does not take up new tech as fast as many people think or would want.

*Please note, this is not an attack at you.*
