It applies to ARM chip based I-phones, tablets, and ultra-slim notebooks. I got it. Sorry.

No problem it gets confusing, even the people at the Build conference didn't really know what it was all about! LOL

Re: Welcolm to Windows 8;

Well I am an old guy(58), and it is hard to get me to try anything that is new. I do not like the Metro style desktop. For me going to Win 7 from XP wasn't too much differance. Seems like I just spent a bunch of money on the new MS Win OS (Win7) for five machines, and it really isn't needed to buy from M$ again already so soon.

Wait a minute!!! THAT is YOUR point of view!

Think about microsoft. It's a better idea to sell you new things for hundreds of dollars each and every month that do the same things that you already do!

Now that is progress. Just make it look a bit different before its sold.

Though I will take a look look at it - I can't see it being my main OS after watching a couple a video reviews.
