It is just a clever mix between the two. In no way does the esque of the tablet ever intervene with the PC. The mouse does just as well as what the finger does. The two don't clash in any real way. Right off the bat he says Windows 8 is unusable. This is obviously false because plenty of people are using Windows 8 just fine and I assure it does not take a genius to use windows 8. In fact if you watched the short clips it plays when you first run Windows 8 you'll probably have figured out all the unique features that separate windows 8 from it previous generations from the get go. Windows 8 is unusable if you lack certain basic reasoning skills or are just to stubborn to learn them. "Oh snap no start button? I"m boned..."... The UI is the same as all the other windows OS. I'm staring at a desktop like you are with shortcuts and applications that appear at the taskbar with a clock on the bottom right. If I want to shut down I use the top right corner and a menu pops out for me to do so. If I want the start menu its on the bottom left or I just hit the Windows key. These difference are so minuscule that the only thing separating a person who knows how to use them from a person that doesn't is stubbornness or an IQ difference of about 70. I remember watching that video back when I hadn't tried Windows 8 yet and my only perspective of it was from the reviews I read. I knew then that this guy was clearly exaggerating and couldn't bother to watch him rant 20 minutes about how terrible windows 8 is and I can't be bothered to now as I type this on Windows 8. Your only real issue with Windows 8 is drivers but that typically goes for any new OS.
