Microsoft has given us its first public demo of Windows 8. It looks flashy, but Microsoft is still trying to marry tablets with desktops. This time, it could ruin the standard version of Windows in the process.
Microsoft has given us a first taste of Windows 8. Unfortunately, while it has some attractive visual elements, Microsoft’s approach shows that the company hasn’t learned much from its product failures over the past decade.
