    Interesting. I was a little perturbed by the absence of any apparent alternative for traditional desktop users, who are not yet excited about the Metro interface. This was strongly hinted at in earlier MS blogs.

    This was , possibly, a typo (in the text blurb)
    "Microsoft offered a 15-minute tour of the best new stuff, which will be available in late February as another public developer preview."

    All indications are that this will be a Beta, not a developer preview.

    I am hearing Feb 12 and for us desktop users there are a few options.

    I guess it looks cool, but it seems like Microsoft is trying to make the PC into a smart phone, and it's to the point where this doesn't even feel like Windows anymore. Oh well, I'm still very interested in trying it out cause it still looks really fun.

    Thats the same vibe I have for Windows 8. Say hello to a whole new world of video conferencing, where everyone can see who they are talking to from a ipad/netbook.

    Now all we need is a Cell Phone Card that uses PC system resources. This would minimize the need to upgrade cell phone hardware every 6 months.
