    Only small-ish photos, but it's official. These were taken at Microsoft's Build conference.

    It looks like we'll get the Windows 7 start menu functionality that we all liked so much, combined with live tiles. Now that's cool. It really seems like a best of both worlds kinda thing. I'm actually excited about it.

    Also, Metro apps running in windows, and pinnable to the task bar.

    This is what it should had been like from the start.
