    Hey A Guy, it's about time! Heck, if you hadn't posted I would have felt discriminated against! LOL! And "Comic Relief" ... good call

    For Graphics, I had thought of nominating one of the 7 dwarfs from Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs. He was responsible for the graphics in W8 ... namely Dopey! But thought I might get into trouble from the new board of directors!

    Cheers M.

    CEO Australian Distribution: Kat

    Now for the $64 qustions and a free hit:

    1. What would you name the new Company and Operating System?

    2. In the light of all the discussion that's gone on in Win8 Forums over the past year, how would you build the Operating System from the ground up? No limitations.


    • One OS for all platforms including Enterprise, OEM installers, Desktop, Laptop, Tablet, Smartfone, etc?
    • Primary control orientation to mouse, keyboard, touch?
    • Folder menu orientation to text/drop down menus, ribbon?
    • Start Menu orientation as tiles, alpha numeric, cascaded, whatever?
    • Whatever you feel should be left out, added or amended to W8?


    Try to look at it from all perspectives of design, production, marketing, distribution, competition, etc.

    No holds barred. Go for it and enjoy!

    I'll take the graphic design department. I think anyone could do better than the kiddie-blocks they're using for icons these days!

    I'm not sure, but I PMed him last night about changing a post with a swear word in it. Can't say that was it, but it's possible. A Guy
