i c that with win8 release there will be another flame war between linux vs win.
i understand why ppl think win8 is the next best thing after bread.:)
but on the long run it hurts us all. open source is the way to go ppl!
and remember kids vendor lockin is a bad thing!

ubuntu :P haha
but maybe you are right, i use windows more than ubuntu
and of course mac os can't do half what windows and linux do
but when it comes to smartphones it's difference
i don't want to start "My OS is better than your OS" conversation

I bet any of you using Android or IOS can not get away from Windows. It is the case for me. I have the new Ipad and an Android phone, but still have to go back to my computer when I need to do the "real stuff". Now Windows 8 is coming. For the first time, my dream comes true. Guess what I am going to carry Windows 8 surface "pad" with Nokia Lumia 920. They are going to work together smoothly.......

Holding an event at the same day as its competitor's launch event? WTH? Maybe google is threatened by the microsoft launch.

Im pretty sure this event won't cloud the Microsoft event. The media is already prepairing for that big microsoft launch.

and reports said that microsoft is already burrying zune (maybe you wont't need it anymore in WP8).

They said it will be smooth not 100% lag free anyway.

Key Lime pie is now the best fix! Hope they give more details for the update

Can't wait then it'll be 100% lag free.

I bet Google are really sure that they'll totally overshadow Microsoft and Apple events and gain more press interest.
I'd say they totally have the potential.

I really love the Nexus line of devices, its like Google picking out a competitor to design and manufacture the best phone and picking the best one. I love Google and Android, can't wait for the Nexus awesomeness!
