But then they'd probably have even more hardware issues surely?
Actually I can't envisage what would constitute a radical new OS, that is not just another way of doing the same thing.
Whether in a couple of years or five or six that's got to involve problems.
At the moment my pc is about being home. I use it for music, movies, tv plus I absorb info, culture and talk to folk I may never meet. It is very important.
I suppose I could buy into a convergence of technologies and mobile devices becoming part of that. I don't think that would attract me though. I have enough internet in my life.
IMO 3D and touchscreens for desktop pcs will be a flash in the pan also.

Actually, who am I kidding?. As soon as Widows 8 arrives I shall be putting my hand in my pocket once again

Better displays: That's nice, but hardly worth a whole new OS.

Considering these are the highlights, conclusion: If MS doesn't think of something better than this, Win 8 is going to be their Snow Leopard, a service pack disguised as and priced like a brand new OS.
Asus also has smart logon software, similar to facial recognition
