But not everything has changed... just a great deal. Even in Windows Explorer, the view now sports a Ribbon to enable better touch-screen accessibility as well as allowing more space for menu options. Not sure if it is just me, but Explorer is starting to look a little cluttered.
Depending on what you click on, you will receive different options in the menus. Applications will get a special tab that opens up dedicated to them, just as you would get a 'picture' in an Office document tab.
The on-screen keyboard has changed completely -- now taking up a great portion of the lower screen. It can be moved and resized, but it feels like an actual keyboard when typing on it. Of course, this is all hardware dependent, but my hardware runs Windows 8 very smoothly. Hold down a key and you get other characters associated with that latter, and multi-touch works, naturally.
