Default Quick Comparison of OS X Lion and Windows 8

"But the similarities don't end at the two future desktop OS's mobile influencers. Both Lion and Window 8 will make heavy use of touch interfaces, but with a big difference, as you'll see in the slideshow below. Both will have an App Store, both have full screen app views, and both offer new ways to switch among and navigate within apps." has put together a quick comparison of some of the differences between the upcoming new versions of Apple's and Micrsosoft's desktop operating systems. While not a comprehensive overview, it does cover some of the major areas that many people will compare, including: similarity of the new operating system's user interface to the same platform's mobile system counterpart, touch and gesture support, processor support, task switching approach, support for full screen apps, each platform's app stores, backward compatibility, and some of the unique features of each platform. The article makes lots of interesting points illustrated by some screen captures.
