Atari Brings Retro to Windows 8

The Windows 8 marketing campaign has begun, with that tile based user interface (UI) creeping into social consciousness quicker than any operating system (OS) ever before.

windows 8 only gets performance right. Jumping back and forth from desktop to metro is awful because you have no choice.

Why would you like a tablet os on desktop?

Apple is smarter than them..

So Windows 8 is as good as my browser or my emulators in MAME or even my browser for those games? Great to know, that's awesome.

Windows 8 is primarily a PC platform. You might want to go about showing that this doesn't much up gaming, modding and file management before you go about seducing little kids with wealthy parents.

Isn't it too soon for Windows 8? I mean, I feel like I only -just- broke free of Vista to get Winny 7.
