Microsoft officially unveils Windows 8
what?! windows 8? i just bought and uploaded windows 7 a few months ago!
"Microsoft has officially unveiled some key new features of its forthcoming operating system. The next-generation OS, which may or may not be called Windows 8 (its internal code-name), delivers a completely re-imagined user interface, with a heavy emphasis on touch-based functionality that takes a hefty helping of inspiration from the Windows Phone UI.
One of the first major design changes from previous Windows versions is the completely overhauled Windows Start menu, which has been replaced with a colorful tiled design that evokes the ExposÃ© screen of Firefox, or other similar quick-screen-navigation features found in most new web browsers. Rather than web pages, however, the new Start screen shows both static program icons and widgets, called live tiles, which provide constant notifications and updates. Windows 8 also allows users to access all the files on their computer in the same visualized way that programs are accessed, which helps make the OS easy to navigate with touch alone."

Yeah that's pretty obnoxious. That's one of the main reasons I stayed away from Apple. You'd buy an Ipod and before the cashier could hand you your change you'd see someone rolling out a pallet of the 48th new version of it. Innovation is good, but I'd appreciate if I'm allowed to savor whatever I'm enjoying before I'm told to spit it out in favor of something "better".
Isn't it the truth! Between the ever increasing speed of technological gains and a growing world economy with every more participants you can't ever own the latest and greatest for more than a few hours.
I gave up long ago - the computer I use is at least 5 or 6 years old and won't run windows 7. It does fine on the net, though, and that's about all I ask of it.
