    For you maybe, but not me. I have some doubts about an iPad being a viable platform for post production work!

    Windows Web



    Have they ever called a Windows version by a common marketing name?



    My vote goes for plain old Windows 8. Windows 7 has been incredibly popular and Windows 8 just sounds to me (and I'm sure to mainstream users) like "the next version of Windows 7".



    Windows 8 would probably go down nicely in China as well



    If Microsoft were to go with a name, I think they would stick with something cloud-ish since Windows 8 will be Microsoft's first desktop "cloud OS". Maybe Windows Stratus?

    Hell im even on Ubuntu at the moment .



    Yeah... computers are dead... because I do everything with my HP-41c calculator.



    Ever since having spaghetti I realize all other food is useless...



    Just because you don't need to it doesn't mean it's dead... think before typing

    Ubuntu's not a "full" computer system? Since when?
