Windows 8? Maybe…

I stumbled upon this while searching for blog worthy news…

A set of PowerPoint slides that appear to contain details about the next version of Microsoft’s (Nasdaq: MSFT) Windows operating system surfaced Monday.

The slides indicate that Microsoft plans to tackle the long-running problem of Windows’ slow start-up time, in addition to placing cutting-edge technology such as facial recognition in the new operating system.

These are the main things that they are looking to tackle in these leaked slides. I for one don’t seem to have much of an issue with start times… and unless web cameras have infrared and can detect depth etc… then a picture of oneself could unlock a PC quite easily, unless of course you pair it with login credentials, then you’d have pretty tight security.

I for one dont always believe in leaked documents, slides, videos etc… with today’s technology you can do anything! All i want is a “prettier” experience with Windows 8… we get it Windows 7 is stable… lets make it look a little better…
