I fear for the cost of any computer system that is reliant on a touch screen, as the money to mass-market something of that sort would be staggering. Admittedly this is an incredibly cool new feature, but may seem more of a gimmick than a necessity. Apart from this it does feel like a re-hash of Vista.

The compatibility functions are a bit iffy as well, with Windows haggling for faster processing speeds and less interest in backwards compatibility. After a while this would have little meaning, granted, but that is a long way off.

Old news is old.
It actually has a bit of potential if Microsoft doesn't follow their usual ways of making great possibilities shitty.

I hope that MS has learnt by burning its fingers at the Vista fiasco and would learn more about users expectations and would come up with a product in line with that.

After the creation of Vista I'm worried about anything that Microsoft would even think of creating. They seem to think that they're making things better but they're not.

Vista was no worse than XP was when it was released. People hated and complained about it all the same until it was tweaked to perfection. I can't be the only one that remembers that as well.

You're right about XP now that I stop to think about it I do remember it. What I don't get is why doesn't Microsoft slow down and work out the kinks instead of just throwing product after product at people? Don't they realize that this is just giving them a bad name? Or don't they care?

There's no fixing Windows Vista. They're just moving on.

Not some new news actually. May be I read it late

Anyhow, when I found that it has touch screen capabilities, it just mean that Bill Gates have already planned to top the World's richest man once again beating Warren buffet
