Check out the commercial (I like it) that runs here on TV for Windows 8, officially released on Friday- http://techcrunch.com/2012/10/15/microsofts-new-windows-8-commercial-has-lift-off/ . The Microsoft entry into the tablet market is called the Surface (go ‘Wikipedia Surface’ to check it out), and is now on sale as well. The Surface gets Windows 8, as do Windows smart phones and all new Windows computers. I wouldn’t spring for the Surface since I already have an iPad, but I would like to have Windows 8 for a new desktop computer or notebook computer. It has been three years in the making : development on it started even before Windows 7 was released in 2009. Which makes one wonder what those legions of Microsoft programmers are working on today?
