WOW, Microsoft is doing something relevant & exciting for the 1st time in decades. From someone who's claimed to throw a party when I hear the news of Microsoft filing Chapter 11, though this is definitely a serious bit of catchup, looks like it could actually be fresh & doing some relevant, cool, intuitive stuff that has not been done yet. Microsoft has been sitting cocky & over-comfortable on its laurels for WAY too long, making ridiculously sad improvements for way too long. Constantly disappointing with all their claims to new & future greatness.  I am still about to jump ship to the Droid X, and still waiting eagerly to seewhat the Chrome (Google) OS is all about or go back to Mac, but this is DEFINITELY a hardcore step in the right direction tha may provide doubt with people like myself leaving, or hope if I cannot adjust to the Android migration. When it comes to technology (not people!) I'm all about survival of the fittest, and Microsoft has been way overdue for a complete & significant overhaul! C'mon....HOW MANY YEARS has it been they they haven't fixed even simple annoying things like not being able to have any character (like ?, /,! etc.) be in a file or folder name!??!?!??! This is a manufacturer OUT OF TOUCH. (Don't get me started! Uhhh........$69. just to get a yes/no question answered for PCs or even mobile devices. Microsoft is SO hated!! Even more than highway ticket patrol! LOL) Up til now, I try to replace every app, utility (like defrag) or browser with a non-Microsoft app since they're all usually faster, leaner, more private, FREE, and actually work right. (Anything Microsoft does, someone else can do better, free or cheap usually. ) IS THE WINDOWS M.O. & REPUTATION FINALLY GOING TO CHANGE........................................? This is actually looking promising!

 

BAD NEWS IS:     RUMOR HAS IS THAT BECAUSE WM7 IS GOING TO BE SO DIFFERENT AND HOPEFULLY REVOLUTIONARILY GOOD (UNLIKE CERTAIN OTHER RECENT CLAIMS FOR MICROSOFT ABORTIONS), THAT NO  ( R E P E A T ) N-O- PHONES BEFORE THIS COMES OUT WILL BE UPGRADABLE HARDWARE-WISE TO WM7, INCLUDING NEW WM6.5 DEVICES LIKE TOUCHPRO2 or OMNIA2. I'm guessing the screens alone would be a reason.

 

QUESTION:  Since the new screens will be heat-reactive, will  the new devices come with heat-reactive STYLUSES for classic Windows apps like handwriting recognition?
