I really like the live tiles conceit. I prefer it over boring icons, something everyone is used to from desktop operating systems. The live tiles are a bit of a jump forward beyond icons. But, MSFT has a very difficult challenge attacking computing from the top (big devices) to smaller/mobile devices. Apple is attacking it from small devices...phones and tablets. Soon, these mobile apps are going to be sophisticated enough such that u don't need a desktop or laptop anymore...all they really need is a productivity software. Hence, msft including office in windows surface tablet. If the surface is priced at $300 I'm going to get one...it's worth it just for Office and the keyboard.
