    Re: Windows 8 Plans Leaked: Numerous Details Revealed

    I'm extremely skeptical. That "disclosed under NDA" series of images is no more specific than a trade show press release. Additionally, that "prototype" iMa---sorry, iWindows PC design has to be one of the least ergonomic computer designs in existence, which is the entirely OPPOSITE goal of the so-called "leaked details". I'd actually believe the images more if that design was actually advertised as some sort of entirely "Touch"-based PC without a mouse/keyboard entirely... Then I'd have no further to look than the Microsoft Surface to think this leak is unlikely real.

    I'll wait for a Toms article before I buy this as anywhere near legitimate.

      I heard from a windows weekly twit episode that they plan to integrate the Kinect (project natal stuff) into windows 8.

      I would love that. Being able to debug code using hand gestures makes a lot of sense.

        It would be nice to have a second security layer (like passcode) in addition to the facial recognition on logon. That way we could have a even more secure system (like public spaces) that can't be broken into with just a password. (Facehacking is another issue...)

            I bet I even know the exact hand gesture you have in mind, Grande...

                That's another possibility, yes :)

                    I was thinking for kill. :p

                    Maybe we could combine it and make: exekill - for the mishappen code that you know will crash and burn on the first run. :D
