Craig Grannell:
>Kudos to Microsoft if they pull this off and ‘force’ software creators to make their products work brilliantly with pointers and touch, but I worry Windows 8 will be the same old Windows on the desktop, and also the same old Windows on a tablet, just with a touch skin overlay that works really well for very few applications.

If you look back to that [Windows 8 demo video](, notice how they didn’t demo using Excel on the device — cause that would have been hilarious to see.
