Windows 8 Understands What a Computer is Supposed to do in 2012

David Pierce, The Verge:

Ultimately, that’s what I love about Windows 8: without losing any power or capability, it added a ton of the features I love about my phone, from full-screen optimized apps to pretty interfaces to lots of glanceable content. I don’t need to spend all my time bouncing between a dozen different apps, because so much information is already surfaced for me.

Windows 8 is more productive and fun:

I’ll be switching because Windows 8 is the first desktop operating system that understands what a computer is supposed to do in 2012, and it’s at once more productive and more fun than any OS I’ve used before.
