@evildictaitor: Wow. You got reach back to the command line? Really? I don't suppose the command line had anything to do with the natural progression of computers? I think users found Windows 95 amazing it its day and Windows 7 was well received by the average joe. Nice stretch Evild. Oh and BTW, my kids are both using W8. My daughter bails to the desktop right away; doesn't like metro. She's 17. My son just likes the free games; he's 15. My GF won't touch it; way too many new things to learn. Glad to know your representation of the entire world is as accurate as ever.
I'm also glad to know at least that we both agree Windows Everywhere isn't about performance. Maybe they should call it Longhorn Phone Edition for the phones? That has a nice ring to it.
