Windows 8

Looks good.. but haven’t we gotten used to the idea that Microsoft notoriously oversells everything they are working on?

It seems as is “Windows 8” is pretty much Windows 7 w. IE9 running in fullscreen mode. Except the coolness is not Silverlight driven. Instead, they are now embracing HTML5 and javascript, and touting THAT as the panacea. It used to be silverlight and WPF, but I guess that now it is HTML5/JS.

Now the Silverlight/WPF crowd is screaming, and soon the HTML5/JS will too. The IE version with cool 3D HTML5 will naturally have its own, special Microsoft interpretation of the standard.
