Gotta say when I was told repeatedly at MVP Summit that Win7 is now considered a dead OS by MS and all focus is on Win8, I was a little sick at my stomach. I did ask a few times why when they finally got it perfect they would be in a hurry to move on, which sounded a bit Luddite but I got a lot of nodding heads and shrugs.
I've been Dual Booting on it for a week and I like the Windows 7 parts of Win8 which seem just a tad quicker. But I have no use for Metro except to make it as painless of a Start page as possible. The revolving-wall trial apps mess were out the door in a day. And they plan to sell these?
