Window 8 is like a big phone.

New Windows 8, coming into beta this month, is moving to a more touch friendly UI.  Looks like they see more and more consumers are replacing their laptops and desktops for tablets and they don’t want to loss the boat.

The new start feature feels like a big Windows Mobile phone with “apps” you can download from their marketplace.  The UI and apps fill the screen to the edge but you can still get to a command prompt if you are feeling nostalgic.
