Last week, I bought Asus ET2400 desktop with Windows7 touchscreen, 3D support. I wonder what is new in touchscreen even after such PC touchscreens, IPhone, IPad, etc. First of all, the initial look of Windows8 does not attract me. However, eager to see how the competition goes.. as a future innovator.

Rick has a point here. Vendors of each of these new devices always talk about "intuitive" UIs, but from users' standpoint, it's always yet another fresh learning and more trials and errors -- by fiddling with the UIs. It's one of the reasons why I remain skeptical about whether consumers are so eager to leave the familiar UI for yet another new UI just because the vendors say so.

I already have Android, iOS and Windows devices, plus a digital camera and MP3 player with their own UIs. Each was no doubt "intuitive" for their designers, but requires fresh learning for me. Alas! Now Windows will have a fresh UI in part to look hip. More learning for me. As always with new OSes, the question is what real new hardware do they enable. For Win 8 its ARM and touch screens. An important bit of catch up for Microsoft, but it doesn't really move the ball forward for the industry. Final issues that will determine its success: How robust is the OS and how fast is the responsiveness on various x86 and ARM SoCs?

We'd love to hear your "review" of the OS

It seems to me that Win8 is going to be a "consolidated" OS for both tablet and computer. User has an option to choose between different UI - keyboard and mouse or, touchscreen. Win8, as well, consolidates the GUI of all platforms - smartphone, tablet and PC. It is a logical and smart move. Who would want to keep changing/ learning UI as they use different devices at any moment?

Windows NT was designed ahead of the typical hardware capability at the time. NT was used in server for years before Windows 2000 took over.

You forgot Win NT: very bad. Remember the BSoD?

My guess is win 8 : Excellent. I admire windows for its ease of use and user friendly interface.

Microsoft should get this out asap to gain the market share of smart phone OS.

As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
