Here are a few aspects of the new interface we showed today:
• Fast launching of apps from a tile-based Start screen, which replaces the Windows Start menu with a customizable, scalable full-screen view of apps.
• Live tiles with notifications, showing always up-to-date information from your apps.
• Fluid, natural switching between running apps.
• Convenient ability to snap and resize an app to the side of the screen, so you can really multitask using the capabilities of Windows.
• Fully touch-optimized browsing, with all the power of hardware-accelerated Internet Explorer 10.
The only people that like it are those clinging to 10 year old computers.
Planned obsalescence. And you're buying into it hook line and sinker.
my computers do the same thing they did a few years ago...they just do it a heck of a lot faster now!
]Oh, unless you count needing to move to the latest MS OS. That's the only reason for new hardware, and the reason stuff runs slow
The only thing we've needed more speed for in my home and office usage in the last 5+ years was virtualization - clearly a high end need. There's been no new uses in that time that meant a need for new hardware.
