Anyone have a copy of CP/M that I could put on my phone?
No. Windows 8 will PRESENTLY not run on Windows Phone, and the video I posted above is just a conceptual demonstration (really fancy special effects supposedly made in Photoshop), made by one of my co-workers who happens to be extremely talented at video editing, and he wanted me to post it to Channel9 to see what reactions it would get.

So what you're saying is that someone is basing their entire dislike of Windows8 on conjecture and fancy video editing rather than actually trying it?
Windows8 isn't for phones anyway. It's for tablets, desktops and servers.
The video just shows that Windows 8 in its current form does not make sense as a phone OS, particularly due to its horizontal rather than vertical scrolling, and its style of "make everything big tiles" rather than organized lists of applications (folders or some kind of alphabetical auto-sort would be nice, particularly for mobile devices with small screens.
Also; I can see Windows 8 for tablets, but its touch-oriented design appears to be geared towards mobile devices, rather than desktop computers and servers. Since no noticeable improvements were made towards the desktop side of things (the standard Desktop view), and no word on server-side improvements, it seems to be destined for Windows Phones and Tablets.
Also; isn't Apollo supposed to be Windows 8 running on phones? So isn't Microsoft planning on putting this on their phone platform.
