Right on! The screen on my Iphone looks bad enough. It gets so smeared up it's impossible to keep it clean. I can't imagine my desktop 21" LED screen looking like that!

We've all seen those tests where they measure the harmul bacteria level present on your door knob, kitchen cabinet tops, etc, well I'm waiting for someone to test the average W8 touchscreen and tell us what a prolific breeding ground W8 touchscreens are for harmful germs and bacteria. Who knows, maybe W8 is bad for our health!
I bet M$ would love to hear about that!

It is possible to upgrade to successive version of Ubuntu - but I think the download for the upgrade is bigger than just getting the new installation iso.

There are ways to purge the old unused files in Linux...

Hi there
the average Toilet seat in a typical office is actually CLEANER than the door handle on the "Bog door" you use to get into the "small room".

Wonder how the "touch screen" admirers think about that one.

Actually your keyboard is the place to look for what collects as far as bugs and bacteria growing on any food particles trapped inbetween and to borrow the phrase "Down Under" the keys themselves! That would also be a small concern for onscreen keyboard use as well only to the lesser extent however over smeared and worn from pressing finger tips into the screen constantly! If people can't stand having touchscreen on 7 you can imagine what they think of it in 8!

You too I see! I go through enough keyboards as it is from worn keys and print worn off of the keys and then want to poke holes in the lcd display? NO THANKS! As soon as someone gets frustrated at something hanging up and keeps pressing in harder there goes the screen! For delicate use only! Going to play a 1st person shooter and fire away at the onscreen keyboard? jab jab jab jab jab CRUNCH! :0 "my screen!"

Someone was out to lunch there alright!

The main problem when dealing with the masses and touchscreen is simply people automatically applying a different touch pressure when going to press anything onscreen as well as the constant outstretch of the arm to reach the screen(s) used. Reach for this! reach for that constantly after a short period of time will become too tiresome for most! Plus a steel worker or someone who handles furniture like a mover is more apt to push their fingers right through a screen especially if frustrated at something hanging up.

Best left for quick transactions at retail outlets and atm teller machines for the momentary only type contacts not hour after hour after....

I see what they've done here and I like it. They've brought the Start experience roughly on par with the one in Windows 7 in terms of functionality.

1. You have a visual cue for Start. Quasi Start button. Check.
2. You have a smaller selection of applications (aka Start Screen). The selection doesn't create itself automatically though. Quasi Start Menu. Check.
3. You have an All Apps screen with a visual cue for the search function always present plus a couple of practical sorting options for it. Quasi Start Search. Check.

This might even be worth having. (What took them so long??)
Although it still won't get to be my primary system.
