    Microsoft holds too many patents/proprietary stuffs on inking, and this feature would make other browsers like a joke.

    But ultimately, I still want them to integrate a web browser and PDF reader right inside of OneNote.

    The upcoming browser that's currently being called Project Spartan certainly seems to have been designed with tablet users in mind -- the first thing MS demonstrated was the ability to draw notes on a webpage with a pen.

    Any inkling as to if Spartan will be included in a Windows 10 preview update?

    During the press event yesterday, MS said that Spartan will be in the Technical Preview, but not soon -- It'll apparently be a few months.

    I'm pretty disappointed in the UI for this on both phone and tablet.

    Metro IE was far better. Address bar at the top is just bad design for phone and tablet. The address bar at the top and the buttons on the bottom on the phone wastes a lot of space.

    It also looks like they haven't really solved the mislabeling problem on the phone version. They call them 'tabs' but it's really like you have a bunch of different windows open... the type of thing we moved away from when Firefox first brought tabbed browsing. Metro IE handles this better too.

    Remember that this will be used by Desktop users with no touch interface as well. I guess only the tablet users will complain - more bad news for us
