I thought I would be able to get some work done tonight but am so amped from the announcement at CES that I'm likely to spend the rest of my time cruising forums, and monitoring reactions.
So far they're mostly good, although there are a fair share of skeptics and outright naysayers.
The only thing I would tell people to think about as they look over what's been released is that the images shown represent a body of work over time--- the screenshots were'nt all taken at the same point in time, and all screens, no matter *when* they were taken represent work in progress--- things are bound to change until RTM. On the other hand, some stuff in the shots is pretty much finished. We are building a whole planet here, some parts are more finished than others.
I'm not allowed to comment on much more than what's been made available to the public, but I will say that y'all haven't seen everything yet... ;)
Maybe more later,
For those who saw the webcast of BillG's keynote, that wasn't a video. That was a live demo of a product.
I do want to be clear: a lot of what you see in the screenshots shown is finished work. Some shots a from awhile ago, and some are more recent. Not everything shown is finished yet-- if it was I could go home, and everybody'd have a copy in their hands...
