Windows 8 Leak Tells Little

Slides reportedly explaining some new features in Windows 8 are making the rounds, and the news is not exactly earth shattering.

There was no information about a new, more reliable and speedy kernel, nor any hint of blockbuster features. Instead the slide deck talks about using less power, faster wakeups, a possible 3-D interface (my eyes are getting blurry just thinking about it) and implemented facial recognition to replace passwords. 

Given past history, the new Windows could be out next year, so I expect more leaks soon.
