Windows 7 + cooler "Front Row"?
Anyway, though I'm still not terribly wowed by the whole thing, it's probably too early to pass any real judgment on Windows 8 as we've seen so very little of it so far. The way I understand it it isn't really a touch interface on top of Win 7 so much as a touch shell alongside of it. Or maybe the traditional Aero interface is only available when running legacy programs?
Frankly, I don't really know what to make of this yet. BUILD(formerly PDC11) can't come soon enough.
