Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 operating system might have a new look - but it certainly has something in common with previous versions of the operating system.

During a demonstration of the new 'Metro' tablet control system, a demonstration unit 'froze'.

Despite frantic efforts by Microsoft staff, it could not be resuscitated.

Hope they manage to fix whatever bug is plaguing them by the predicted October launch.

I'd like to see Microsoft launch a really great OS, something that creates a bit of hype in the market.

Seriously? You want to tell me they only had one tablet up there on the stage and didn't have a few standby units on hand for just such an eventuality?

When will these people ever learn?

I, for one, am looking forward to using a real tablet.

iOS is a bit of a joke. It's great for browsing and Angry Birds, but it's a toy. It's time for a real tablet
