I can't think of a single thing that would make the new Xbox less appealing... Well, maybe if they said that for each new Xbox, they have to instill the essence of a dozen murdered puppies.

Windows 8? Really? Yeah, those HDTV touch-screens are just SET to take off soon, man!

There is literally nobody left at Microsoft with half a shred of sanity.


They'd take all the Touch out of it. It would look and function EXACTLY like Dashboard looks now, only with brighter colors.

So I don't get your complaint. It couldn't really be any worse, could it?

They just take the Start screen functionality of Metro, add controller functionality and get rid of the desktop. Bam! Windows 8 720.

Seeing as how the Touch aspect of Windows 8 is about the ONLY thing that's even remotely worth looking it (for touch devices), according to the large majority of previews I've read, if you take it out, you're left with... profit? Metro without touch! Woot.

So it'll just be like dashboard? Why bother redoing something if you're only making it exactly the same?
