Windows 8

What could go wrong?

It may have the start-bar-and-icon Desktop look that Windows users are familiar with, but as the crowd at Anaheim, California, saw, any similarities with Windows 7 end there.

The new system has a new, touchscreen-optimized interface called 'Metro,' which looks more like the Windows Phone operating system.

I must confess, I like the look of it. The "thumbs" keyboard layout is particularly clever; at least if you are young enough to have learned to type with your thumbs.

The next generation of tablets should run Windows 8 without difficulty. Something to consider regarding your Apple/Android portfolio.
