"You like something Microsoft did, you OBVIOUSLY work at Microsoft"
Just because you don't get it, doesn't mean that everyone else is equally stupid. I'm USING it across all platforms. It works better than our iPads that we've been trying to deploy for 3 months now with significant issues. Windows tablet satisfied all business requirements OUT OF THE BOX with no need to buy additional software.
PC interface works well too. You have to open the mind and try it before you'll understand.
Also, I am glad you are the exception to the rule with your really narrow view of how computers will work with Kinect. Here's a nugget for you: Kinect is hooked up in a conference room to a laptop. The laptop is hooked into Active Directory and can see the calendar so it knows who is supposed to be in the meeting. Upon sitting down, Kinect recognizes everybody in the meeting and marks them present. It then begins taking notes of what everybody says during the entire meeting as it can see who is speaking and recognizes their voices, keeping a full transcript of the entire meeting. The meeting ends and before the employees are back at their desk, they've got an email with a link to the transcript on sharepoint of the entire meeting at their disposal.
You need to expand OUT of reality. Living in the box gets boring. Things will change without you and you're going to be that old dog struggling to learn new tricks.
