Default Looking into the Future with Windows 8

"The rumors are coming in fast but, as with any unreleased software, it’s hard to be certain which of the rumored features will make it into the final product, which will wind up on the cutting room floor, and which never existed in the first place. We’ve taken a look at all the rumors, all the leaked screenshots, and a few screens we’re pretty sure were flat-out faked, and we’re ready to make a few prognostications about what to expect in Windows 8. We’ll approach this category-by-category."

After giving Windows XP a very long reign over the desktop, it seems that Microsoft has pushed forward its OS release schedule.  Windows 7 is barely 2 years old and all the Microsoft buzz is now around Windows 8, coming soon to a computing device near you.  Lots of new potential features adorn the beta versions of Windows 8 and it is fun to guess which features will make it and which will not.  Of the more interesting ones to me would be the Windows App Store storefront where you can purchase programs online.  While it may seem very much like a mee-too thing, the fact of the matter is that this is the trend to where most people are buying their programs, whether it is games through a system like Steam, or Apple's App Store, or the Android Market.  Not including such a feature simply does not make sense.
