New section for Windows 8

I have been playing around with Windows 8 ...32 and 64 more looks like gaming console than Windows OS we are used to.

There should be a new section for windows 8 I think.

Hi Snowmonkey,
I read some reviews regarding Win 8, is it true that they're making it more for the touch screen computers & laptops? Or can a standard USB KB & Mouse work on it?
I know it's only out in Beta at the mo, but like yourself, getting an advanced preview would be ideal in my line of work.

So far I'm not a fan of Windows 8. Metro is useless on a desktop system. As a replacement for the start button it's perfect as now you can quickly view what is important and in full screen. However,I think I'm going to stick to Windows 7.
