    why Windows 8


    It's my understanding the Windows 8 is going to betargeted to Mobil and not so much toward the desktop. The OS will probably be outin a year and another year before the work force starts using it. I feelWindows 7 like XP is going to be around for a long time.

    The main reason for this particular version is so that Microsoft can play in the mobile market. I hope before RTM they figure out how to properly accomodate the desktop customers of which there are about 1 Billion.
