Hopefully Apple will quit the reactionary responses and not do anything silly with Apple OS. We're upto 10.8 now so it doesn't take a genius to work out they must be working on OS11, even if the next release is 10.9

I'm suspecting the next wave of MacBooks will include a touch screen (yet another U-turn from Apple) if Windows 8 hybrid ultrabooks succeed.

I could live with that, but I don't want some kind of expansion of iOS to be the default desktop experience.
I think Microsoft are right though in the long-term. Touch-fed UI is the future and it makes sense to have a unified OS across devices. Imagine being able to work on Word documents or Excel spreadsheets on an iPad-like device, saving them securely to the cloud and accessing them instantly from your desktop PC and laptop. That's what MS are facilitating. The next step along the road to utopia will be a fully cloud-based profile (including all your applications) which, if you want it to be, will be common across your devices, truly giving you everything anywhere. Though don't expect that just yet. Something like synchronous 40meg connection to the 'net across all devices both wireless and wired will need to be common before that's at all practical.
Can anyone remember how long it said it would take the mediacentre product key to be emailed to you?

I submitted 3 requests yesterday with no response. Finally got the product key today!
Just wanted to report the first major problem I faced today. For some reason, a couple of programmes (Microsoft Word & Adobe Reader) were not responding. Eventually had to restart my PC. Problem has not recurred since.
