Definitely MS's attempt at closing the loop. Will it come without hitches? I don't think so but will it be beneficial in the long run...I'm sure it will after some initial issues are iron out and users get their heads into the OS in terms of usability.

Look, for many, we get new cellphones almost every 2 years and we have to get used to changes in OS there...takes a while but we get there...or else we will still be using NOKIA 3310's.

I'm prediciting a bright future for MS OS 8+. Will I dive in and get the first OS8 release maybe not but an upgrade is inevitable at some stage...next year, the following year...its gonna happen I think...

My 2 cents and must say the original poster did an awesome job explaining his opinion on the matter Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
