Windows 8 will be available on…

October 26th, 2012! That’s right! Just a few minutes ago, Steven Sinofsky announced at Microsoft’s annual sales meeting that customers will be able to get Windows 8 – whether in upgrade fashion or on a new PC – starting on October 26th. Earlier this month at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, Tami Reller told attendees Windows 8 would be available in October. But now everyone has a specific date to mark on their calendars.

The touch screen features might be nice, but I don’t really like the way the desktop looks with the flat mosaic of different sized squares of different colors. Green, orange, blue, purple … yuck. It looks messy. Sorry.

    I have been using the evaluation copy for several weeks on a 6gb laptop and I agree with you.”I don’t really like the way the desktop looks with the flat mosaic of different sized squares of different colors. Green, orange, blue, purple … yuck. It looks messy”. Also, all these squares have a life of their own, they move around when you change screens(laptop to desk top), meaning they are never in the same position when looking for a tab. I would prefer if they were at least in alphabetical order with a most used option. Plus being color blind does not help.
