    That's nice spread across 3 monitors, Dude.

    Looking good, arachaut, but what does touch have to do with the Start Screen other than being scaled to the human finger?
    I just prefer a hierarchical menu layout to find my stuff. No matter how I fit them, they won't appear on the 1920x1080 start screen so I'd be constantly scrolling to find them.

    I find the Classic Start Menu on the Desktop far superior for the way I work.

    Touch interfaces require a rather large contact area compared to a mouse target.

    I'd probably prefer Windows 'Voice', but it's not here yet.
    Not the only reason they are a larger scale. It is also for live tiles, which are great for communicating at-a-glance information.

    We also have this:

    Yes, but he doesn’t see the same one for 13.04 days. I took an average of 16 hours a day. 960min/10min = 96 sessions/day. 1,252/96 = 13.04 days.
