US Military to Use Windows 8. Peace has a Chance.

Rejoice, for Microsoft just inked a USD 617 mil­lion deal to upgrade the US Depart­ment of Defence’s tech infra­struc­ture. Why the cel­eb­ra­tion? Because they will be “upgrad­ing” the entire branch of the min­istry of peace to Win­dows 8 and Sharepoint.

And you thought geeks raging over Ubuntu’s Unity inter­face was bad? Wait till the videos of the mil­it­ary per­son­nel find­ing out they have to live with the Metro inter­face show up. I ima­gine many incid­ences of unfor­tu­nately fatal hard­ware fail­ures to occur when Sur­face tab­let attempt to head­butt bullets.
