    It wasn't a very effective demonstration of how simple Windows 8 might be to use. Unclear how long the kid spent learning how to do the Windows 8 stuff. And it didn't show that the people who watched the demonstration picked up much on what the kid was doing. They were just all amazed that this kid was doing a bunch of stuff on this touch screen as if it were a circus act.

    He wasn't doing anything productive, just swiping the screen.

    The really funny part is the caption at the end - Intuitive, it says.

    Now we know they are taking the p**s

    Basically, it's so obvious for children to use, look at something and touch it.

    Whereas some grumpy old lonely adults are freaking out saying, "Where's the start menu!?!?!?"

    If you thought that was the end, you closed the window too soon.

    Pretty good. Makes me wish Newt Gingrich had become president. We could have gotten rid of the child labor laws and we could all be greeted by tiny humans in M$ stores throughout the USA.

    Yup that's it exactly.

    I put it on my wife's machine and she's tucked right into it. Although she is a bit backwards when it comes to pc use anyhow.
