Having tried and tested the Development preview of Windows 8 I can say with out a doubt its the most unproductive load of crap ever.

It looks like a smart phone, its like one too every single app on one big long list and no search option.

If this is the future I hope I do not live to see it end up like that.

We could be even ahead of this if people weren't so irrational.

If it doesn't show blue screen, it's not made by MicroSoft.

Software-wise those are still do-able. They must first overcome the hardware limitations and pricing.

Neo: Windows 8?
Morpheus: Do you know what it is?

Windows 8 is everywhere. It's all around us, even in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you pay your taxes.Windows 8 is the world that has been pulled over your eyes,to blind you from the truth.

one must understand the stress and presure it implies having a clock EVERYWHERE around. If once we were quantifying our life rythm by days, now we divide our time in units of under 5 minutes... Every god damn new electronic device has a clock display. Do yourself a favor and try, for a while, living without those. You'll feel an unexpected new found freedom!

What is the other face of this video ? Who wants to make an underground video with hackers using the same technologies?

So basically, everything is an advertisement? If you take away all the annoying stuff that I would disable right away, you would end up with a pager. Every smartphone is more useful than this.

"produced by microsoft office"

right would be
"microsoft office developers produced this with adobe premiere" :D

Why does Microsoft's future resemble Apple software on thinner hardware?

And why does Microsoft's promise of 'working and cool looking' software always end up with something like Windows?

So, according to this video our future consists of staring at touch screen displays, playing with touch screen interfaces, living more of our lives through a display and only having contact with people through a digital source, at the same time not socializing with people on a close level, ignoring and not communicating the REAL people around us??? :(

In the future we don't socialize. Everyone is rich. We still use LCD screens(good spotting #14). What a sad future. In reality with mankind spreading like a plague on this planet... how can there even be "jobs" left. Unless 90% of mankind vanish from the planet how can there ever be a good future.

#1 If we follow Microsoft's history of Windows OS:

- Windows 3.1 Great OS
- Windows 95 Crap OS
- Windows 98 Great OS
- Windows Millenium Crap OS
- Windows XP Great OS
- Windows Vista Crap OS
- Windows 7 Great OS

The next endorsement (Windows 8) should be... CRAP...

#24 Seems you got a very valuable life that you demand time back on something you spend your time to click and watch by your own and then also make a comment =)
I really love this kind of comments :D

Why fly? It seems out of place to fly for business with all that fancy tech available to seamlessly link everyone up no matter where one is or what one is doing. There is no escape in this creepy Microsoft future.
