Microsoft Releases Windows 8 Preview
 
Microsoft posted the first public beta of the next version of its Windows operating system on Wednesday, following a debut event at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow -- indicating the company's plans to tackle mobile computing and the iPad head on.

The pre-release version of the operating system -- available for free download at preview.windows.com -- introduces a completely new way to interact with your computer and an entirely new vision for the desktop, thanks to the tile-based “Metro” interface the company created for its Windows Phone platform.
Metro has been widely hailed for changing the way we think about smartphones, much as the iPhone did in 2007. Thanks to it, Windows 8 will actively present information to you from your first power on, via tiles that flip and transform by themselves rather than waiting for you to, say, launch a website and visit Facebook or open your inbox to check for new email.
“With Windows 8, we reimagined the different ways people interact with their PC and how to make everything feel like a natural extension of the device, whether using a Windows 8 tablet, laptop or all-in-one,” said Steven Sinofsky, president of the Windows and Windows Live Division at Microsoft. “The Windows 8 Consumer Preview brings a no-compromises approach to using your PC.”

You know, as a PC guy I can't say I disagree. The neighbor's cat sneaked into our house, jumped from the recliner, and knocked my Mac over the stool and broke the screen. I never thought I'd miss it much but I do.

You should message FF and tell him to keep his kitties in check... and then send him the bill.

Well, to be fair, that's what my wife and daughter told me anyway. I wasn't there. Perhaps I'm being mislead?
