Windows 8 is coming this year, Windows 8 Consumer Preview will be out later this month, and the burning question is: does anybody care? ZDNet editor and long-time Linux proponent Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols claims Windows 8 will be DOA. Meanwhile, ZDNet Government and DIY-IT editor David Gewirtz (who claims all operating systems annoy him to one degree or another), claims Windows 8 is here to stay, that it matters for "real work," and so will Windows 9. In this video, originally presented as a live webcast on Feburary 15, 2012, here two opposing views on whether Windows is still relevant in a world where iPads, Android devices, and even Linux are grabbing more and more consumer attention: Discover why SJVN (as he's known to the blog-o-sphere) claims that the new Windows Metro user-interface is already stillborn and why Windows is just no longer relevant. Explore why Gewirtz (who recently vowed to move his servers back to Windows, with mixed technical results, and thousands of crazed ZDNet comments), claims that Windows is here to stay, new Microsoft UIs are often imperfect at first, and the Microsoft juggernaut will not be defeated. Learn about why the Post-PC era isn't really here yet and why most productive people can't really survive without a desktop PC or laptop. If you use computers in your business, Windows will be a factor. Don't miss this video featuring CBS Interactive's Distinguished Lecturer David Gewirtz, one of America's leading cyberdefense experts, and ZDNet Contributing Editor Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols, one of America's most-read technology journalists. Bring popcorn. Three ugly, middle-aged men argue about operating systems. It just doesn't get any better than this! Sparks will fly and there will be fireworks
