If you've actually seen any full demos of Windows 8, you'd know why.
Would actually love this hybrid design to replace both tablets & notebooks.
I saw that the other day and almost punched a wall. I JUST GOT W7. And now I will have to upgrade again? Granted, I am sure it will be a non-issue just like with XP when W7 came out - but still. Damn it.
I lol'd at the mental image of Steph punching a hole in the wall because of Windows envy.
Microsoft's pattern of planned obsolescence is pretty well established a this point, the emergence of details for Windows 8 shouldn't really come as a shock.
Hopefully they'll do massive preorder discounts like they did on 7.
By the time 8 comes along I should have a complete hardware refresh so I'll be looking to pay as little as possible for the OS.
That's with a solid state, of course. Windows 7 starts up that fast on my solid state too.
