Why Windows 8 Scares Me
This video gives an overview of Windows 8 and some of the risky design decisions Microsoft made in it. It was designed as a supplement to my blog post on the subject at http://mobileopportunity.blogspot.com/2012/05/fear-and-loathing-and-windows-8.html If you want to fully understand my perspective on Windows 8, you need to read the post.
