I’m completely on the fence.
It seems to me they designed the whole OS to work as a touch interface like a giant tablet. As a fan of Windows 7 I’m pretty bummed out to think that they are chasing their tail and instead of building off of Windows 7 success going completely in a different direction.
Do you anticipate wanting to use your fingers in a touch interface on your PC screen?
It seems Microsoft assumes that everyone just wants to use tablets and they are putting a huge amount of stock into the belief that people want their PC’s to act like tablets.
I dont think that at all. I think people want tablets to be mobile and lightweight and less expensive. to make them light and portable that is why they forgo the physical keyboard. But people that want serious computers for writing and photo editing and video editing aren’t using a touch interface. I feel like they are dumbing the PC down.
Maybe I’m all wrong. Guess I’ll have to wait til it comes out./ I wish there was a Microsoft store where I could bang around on a Windows 8 PC to see if my fears are justified.
