IT consultant

Hi folks! So Windows 8 will be released on October 26th, 2012. I predict that this new UI will not be accepted well. Trying to mash a touch screen like interface onto computers without a touch screen just doesn't make much sense to me. But that's just my opinion. Other things I don't like? Let's...
