The concept video looks amazing... too bad it's completely fake and all done in after effects. I don't know why Microsoft likes to set such expectations, it seems dishonest. I am extremely skeptical that the real final product, whenever it arrives, will work even remotely close to that.
Microsoft didn’t invent the PC but benefited from its invention. Microsoft didn’t invent BASIC, they didn’t invent the PC operating system, they didn’t invent word processor, spreadsheet, or presentation applications, they didn’t invent PC games, they didn’t invent the graphical user interface, they didn’t invent the notebook or the tablet, they didn’t invent the Internet, they didn’t invent the music player or the video game, but they benefited from all these things.
Microsoft spends ad time teaching users how to use Windows 8. Mind you, this is not 2007 when the brand new iPhone came out and nobody had seen a product that used capacitive touch screens and multi touch in this manner. No, this is 2012 and this is just a new version of a new OS that the whole world knows how to use and has been doing it since the nineties AT LEAST. Is MS in the right track? I'm very skeptical.
