So, now we pretty much have Lion and know everything about it and how Apple is slowly merging the best of OSX with the best of iOS, and now that Microsoft has released this gem of a video about W8 http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/01/...-8-tablet-prototypes/?a_dgi=aolshare_facebook what are your thoughts of one vs. the other? I see loads of people complaining about how OSX is becoming iOS, but to be honest, if this merge is going to happen in a near future (which I think is kind of inevitable), then Apple is once again doing it the right way and Microsoft not so much. From what I can see in the vídeo, W8 is basically W7 with a Windows Mobile 7 giant widget which looks pretty neat, true!, and will be nice for basic things like browsing the web and e-mailing. But Microsoft wanting to release this as a universal system for both tablets and PC's is probably the dumbest thing ever: if Netbooks need to have a light version of W7 to run without a lot of lag, then how will a tablet deal with W7? It is quite ridiculous from that video that whenever you want to do document editing, the OS switches back to classical windows view, but even if you don't edit documents in your tablet, then the "classical windows 7" will always be there consuming spaces and resources. On the other hand, if you have a touch screen desktop system, the new panels thing will be pretty cool, but once again, when you'll need to browse files and work, you'll be prompted with the classical windows view again and no need to tell how that view works with touch technology. So, it all seems like an epic failure for me because users will never be able to enjoy the OS as one, because it's basically 2 OS's in one! On one hand, the PC's still don't have the trackpad multitouch technology developed to the Apple standard, which makes that panel interface really silly to control if you don't have a touch screen... You'll have to use a mouse/single touch trackpad which is quite ridiculous (think of controlling iOS with a mouse...), on the other hand, you'll need a mouse and a keyboard if you want to work on a productivity environment. Geez... what a royal mess this will be.
