    I think it's another set of tedious certifications.

    Edit - Will also be another vista-esque midway point between the next great less terrible OS released from Windows.

    It will be a tablet-based OS with a Windows 7 skin available for people not using touchscreen devices. Will use slightly less resources and have some performance increases over Windows 7. Will be using a new file system which will either be extremely shit or extremely good, also includes a feature which allows supported hardware to boot into Windows a lot faster - should be faster at booting than Unix based OS's (Mac, Linux) in this instance.

    Not a significant step forward for desktops, but a pretty great step forward for portable touchscreen devices.
