    I've just installed the new XBox dashboard and am posting this from IE on the XBox.

    Seems to work really well, and I can now watch C9 videos stright on my TV without out having to download them first, though you have to use the MP4 download link to play; WMV's don't seem to work and the in page HTML5 player does not seem to have a way to go full screen; still a big improvement!

    Now to go and see how well some of the Win8 features work with this.

    BTW, I'me typing this on a wireless keyboard, but it only seems to work for text input, you can't scroll the page with the cursor keys, and there is no mouse support, you have to move around with the XBox controller, which actually is not that bad of an experience.

    Good deal.

    I was imagining a furious scramble with the green cursor over the xbox letters as you composed the post. I'll have to have a keyboard for that too.

    Keep us up on this. Do you by chance have a Kinect for Windows?

    @PerfectPhase: Nice! I'm definitely getting the next Xbox. I love this merging of the PC/Mobile/TV worlds.
