I know it's designed for visual peeps but it appears beefy enough to handle the same general kinds of media jobs ppl used to throw almost exclusively at Macs - the fact that MS is even targeting the creative sector is what's getting my hopes up here. Moreover, touchscreen integration into application workflows is also exciting to me, like the best of iOS and a desktop OS at once.
Like using Reaper with both hotkeys and touchscreen at same time =
Yes, for the money one could build a sweetass PC and throw in a great soundcard (maybe even some a RAID too) but again, it's the direction this is going that's peaked my interest... Given that Apple is resting on their laurels with pro audio right now and all.
