No money in it I guess.
Rumor says, that windows 8 will also be the OS for the new Xbox (Xbox 720) as well.
I don't particularly like the look of Windows 8, but that's ultimately not so important. I always thought that the actual desktop in Windows was underused screen estate, so I don't mind them trying something different here. And it's a fact that mobile devices (including tablets and Phones) are gaining prominence - having a common OS and improving compatibility between systems is a good move overall.
For me it's wait and see, but I think there are some good aspects to what has been shown so far.
