Microsoft is getting ready to ditch the “Windows Live” moniker for the company’s suite of online services like mail, messaging, syncing and account management. The changes to Microsoft’s cloud offerings will be more than skin deep though, the revamped Windows Live services will be tightly integrated into the coming Windows 8 operating system.

the windows 8 op system looks weird... almost intimidating. my boyfriend's brother is a network technician and also does stuff with microsoft, he never fully explained exactly what he does anyways i digress. microsoft had sent him a laptop with windows 8 on it and he showed me. i was kinda blown away with... kinda reminded me of the microsoft phone because they have the menu thing going on...

I am running Windows 8 right now on a desktop and a laptop, neither of which have touch screen.

Certainly some getting used to, but if you are used to Windows 7, then it isn't too far removed from what you have been using. Clearly the biggest change is the start menu going away and the start screen replacing it. Overall I think it is a good direction to go in. Don't fragment things like Apple does between 2 operating systems. Create one operating system and give both the desktop and the touch/tablet interface all in one. Needs to be done correctly, but I think MS has done a good job here. Not perfect yet for sure, but getting better with each release I have used so far.

Well my whole issue is that early releases of Win8 had the start menu, and for some strange reason MS decided instead of allowing for an easy transition period to ram it down people's throats.

As a developer, tester, and system administrator... this is painful for the users. They should have implemented a system which allows the users to SELECT and CONFIGURE their preferences instead of ram rodding it down their throats without an option.
