Windows 8 is already a great OS and the Skype app looks great! Once Windows 8 gets all the appropriate apps, I can start using the "Modern" UI more.

Hardly news given the purchase of Skype. I But i have to say that I hate always on. I'll turn it on when I'm ready to call someone or receive a call thanks. Always on is a negative for me.

You will have the option to sign out and not be "on".

Finally, all the pieces are coming together. My wp and pc working as one and looking as one. All you droidboys are going to look rediculous with a android phone and windows pc, but i guess youre used to a lack of uniformity and design...

they really should stop calling it "Modern" and start calling it "Live" (you know, for the Live tiles).
