    " if you upgrade from a pirated copy of Windows 8, even if you bought a legitimate copy your Windows Store and the built-in-apps will still be bricked". - Won't " if you upgrade from a pirated copy of Windows 8, even if you bought a legitimate copy of Windows Store apps your Windows Store and the built-in-apps will still be bricked" be less self-contradictory?

    Windows 8 Modern UI is the best Microsoft can deliver on the current tablet hardware. In a year the hardware will be considerably more powerful making the Blue approach very logical if not the only possible move.

    "Microsoft is also planning a move that may shock and upset some developers ... this choice is a calculated tactic on Microsoft's part to push developers and users to embrace the new platform." - Could you reveal your take - will it upset or push? I guess the latter, developers like evolving APIs more than stagnant ones.

    P.S. Some OS related forums have a nice feature: each post has a small icon indicating the OS used.

    Very clever of microsoft this. "Regular, cheap upgrades." Sounds like they are trying to guarantee a revenue stream because they know the desktop market is diminishing and they need to consolidate while they switch to tablets. Will consumers fall for it though?

    Well that is Microsoft but now that they have acquired Nokia devices I hope it will help them boost their sales.

    No offence, Mikelouis. But, before posting it would do well to have a quick look at some of the alreaduĂ˝ posted content in the forum, and also pay attention to the date of the last post.
    As an example, you have just rekindled a post from last year.
