It is going to fail. Those blocks on the screen do not appear to be in the Golden Ratio to one another which is what everyone prefers to look at. Oh, and it will fail due to one thousand other more important reasons than that one. I don't need an OS likened to a 'surface,' rather I need one that is more metaphorically similar to 'depth.' This thing is for elementary school kids and those who work in marketing.

Remember the rule with Microsoft and their operating systems. You skip every other one. XP was good, Vista was a fail. Windows 7 is good, 8 is one to skip. I don't know anyone that is jumping at the chance to upgrade to 8.

"This thing is for elementary school kids and those who work in marketing"......or in other words, the main demographic of apple users?
