Starts at 3:13 ends at about 4:24.   gHacks also is impressed: http://tinyurl.com/cffu82j 

What I also found interesting at the lockergnome was Chris' article about the survey of 50,000 W8 users here: http://tinyurl.com/cxx99at 


Of the people surveyed, 53% state that they prefer Windows 7. Not happy making for MS. 

My hope is that Start8 will bring a large group of folks who might be unhappy about the W8 Tiles to notice SD and make W8 usable. I don't want to see MS fail. I'd much rather see MS and SD succeed.

I'd rather MS skips this version because for sure i am not going to install it in its current incarnation.

Grouping Start8 as a gadget understates its abilities and just how important it may become to Win8 users.

I could see OEM's wanting to include it as a selling point for Windows 8 cursed rigs.

I can't help but think that all the big players have been taking note of all the negative feedback about Windows 8  Rather than be faced with a huge amount of unsold units, or an equally huge number of OS rollback requests, Start 8 could actually save their bottom line. I see nothing at all wrong with that....everybody wins!
