I doubt that you can form a real opinion about it until you've actually tried it out.

Definitely looks promising. About the whole hardware argument happening, I think what they're trying to do is set an initial hardware requirement and then go from there. This will make sure that software works with hardware. Think of it as the opposite of netbook requirements :).

Well I don't use facebook or xbox live so I don't know what I'm going to do.

I'm very unlikely to ever have an Apple iPhone because I don't want to be one more of those clones.

Soooooo, it's looking more like Android for me....

You could always take those tiles off the home screen...
Just because it's integrated doesn't mean you have to use that feature.

I went android and bought a Motorola Milestone today (Droid in US). Read too much good stuff about the android OS to pass it up and wait forever for W7.

I don't need to try it out to already know that I am not going to like it as much as other phones. The Nexus One, Palm Pre, and iPhone all look better to me. I have seen enough videos and read enough articles to form my own opinion. I think I would absolutely hate the UI as I think it is ugly and not very efficient at some things.
