    Windows 8 tablet sooner than we expect?


    Microsoft is scrambling to get some traction in the slippery tablet space, even though it invented the genre back in 2002. The next version of Windows, called Windows 8 for now, is supposed to embrace the tablet form better than anything produced to date. That should be a long way out, but information leaked by Dell implies it will release a Windows 8 tablet in Q1 of 2012. Can that timetable be met

    I could agree on this, tablets seem to be the next thing.

    But in 2012! Seems pretty fast!

    But I guess that is why I love it!

    in the 4th Quarter of 2010, the Worldwide shipments of mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) exeeded the shipments of PCs for the first tiem - 101 Million VS. 97 Million. I wonder who is buying all that stuff.

    That would account for a few Million (total iPads sold to date is 8 Million). But we are talking 101 Million in 1 quarter. Amazing. And the big Tablet rush is just starting. There is one new Honeycomb tablet coming out every week - not to speak about Palm-OS and the others.

I uninstalled OneDrive a while back, but some programs flash up a warning that it can't be found when saving new files. Looking at the registry, I find numerous references to One Drive (and its predecessor, SkyDrive), so it seems to be embedded in Windows, even though I thought it was removed. ...

What do you want/expect from future versions of Windows?
I can't imagine going back to pre-Windows 7 without the 'winkey+right/left' snapping. It makes managing things so much easier for me. I can't imagine going back to pre Windows 8, with it's new move/copy dialouge box making it so individual files can be paused, and each job is placed neatly in...
