    But that was part of Sinofsky's point in the keynote: with 450 million Windows 8 capable machines out there we have a lot of customers for Metro apps. if it doesn't perform well on those older machines that notion of Sinofsy's is a falicy.

    Most of those aren't multitouch devices and there's nothing to say they haven't (or won't) be improving lower level driver support to reduce any latency that does exist. They're still Metro capable machines and/or a reasonable indication of the sheer size of the Windows ecosystem. It may be those people buy new hardware or devices rather than necessarily just install Windows 8 on their existing hardware. Remember Sinofsky was also talking about opportunity too the hardware partners at the same time.

    So when you "maybe" it all out Windows 8's best chance is on new PCs. Great... Sounds like smoke and mirrors to me...

    If we all believed in unicorns and fairies the world would be a better place.
