Is Windows 8 Apple's Chance?

I wrote most of this blog entry prior to the news of Steve Job's passing and thus held off posting it.

These are not intended to be comprehensive coverage, but rather simply talking points for what is coming from Microsoft. There is no order to these, I'm simply presenting information. This blog is posted to a couple of forums (VBForums and Codeguru/forums), so I'm sure some of the following will drive a few conversations.
