Next generation Windows computers may deliver a direct computing experience , which means that the machines could also function as what might be the equivalent of special purpose devices, while also being fully-fledged PCs.
A Microsoft patent describes the “Direct Computing Experience” in the company’s vision, noting that a Windows platform could be tailored to run in specific modes, different from the general purpose operating mode. (via BeingManan)
This will require nothing more than a special actuation mechanism coupled to the computing device, in concert with the necessary detection sensors.
I think that is a great idea for many people. I wonder if it would work with something like Office. If one is going to use Office for the day at work you would just start up what is necessary to use Office.
