I’m prepared to forgive some hyperbole from someone who is very excited about a project he’s working on, but still, it’s probably a good sign that these guys are calling Windows 8 “mind-blowing” and not, say, “evolutionary.” Between the breathless praise of 7 and Microsoft’s quarterly results, you can actually sense people who are actually pumped about something. There’s not a lot of substance, but it’s kind of nice to have some positive noise around the project.
