Windows 8 Demo Video

I’m sure everyone else has seen this by now. I’m dropping it in here so I can find it quickly without having to wrestle with YouTube.

I’m not sure what to think of this. Seeing it drop into the “classic” Windows UI designed for a mouse made my hair stand on end in horror.

And that makes me wonder how “classic” Windows features will be handled with this new UI; things like listing, moving, copying, and renaming files.

I also wonder if they’ve considered how that UI can tie in with Kinect? I’m sure some people will still want an upright screen and reaching up to do touching will be an RSI nightmare. Using Air Gestures would be great.
