HAHAHAHA.. CHRIS IS MEAN :P but he's right.. tiled interface is great and all but they're still missing something there. Mac by the way shows you gesture when you first power up the machine...

I fix windows computers since 1999. And I tell you. Windows 8 is good concept. Osx like. But for most of the people. Its going to be confused. I had windows 8 like for a while. And in the beginning. Even watching. A video. Get confused. But. Not for long. I think. Microsoft is in a way to compete with apple. But has to get better.
