    Where is that “Metro-inspired Ribbon Look”? All I see is a Metro-inpired toolbar, the same toolbar we’ve been seen for the last 20+ years.

    Also no mention of outlook which might be blow to businesses…

      Outlook is a part of Office suite. I can’t also see any trouble porting Outlook, when other applications ported.

      Consumers don’t need Outlook.  Business need it and they are what give Microsoft most of their Office money.

         I use Outlook and I’m a consumer.  I know many people who use Outlook as their “at home” email choice.

          I too used Outlook as a consumer for years, but that doesn’t make it a consumer program, which is all I’m saying.

    Oh sweet! I massively depend on Office, the Metro version is going to rock from the looks of things.

    So what’s the point of having Windows on ARM?
