Hi there. I recently wrote my experience with Windows 8 and how much I like it, but now, I'll like it even more ! Last year I was toying on my older laptop with GlovePie and other similar application + a Blue tooth dongle, in order to use my Wii remote on my PC. I was very successful and created several script to use my Wii remote in MAME as a steering wheel + controller with tilt functionality all in one. I also created nice scripts to play games such Descent on the PC with a full motion capable Wii remote or CCpro. But enough of that. I also downloaded and tried out some other programs capable of using the Wii remote as a mouse to control Windows 7, and such programs were " Wiimouse " and " Wiinremote" and they worked really well, provided I used my Wii sensor bar along with it, and in order to power that, I had to power on my Wii as well. It wasn't the best solution, but then I only intended to try it out, and honestly controlling Windows 7 with a Wii remote can be quite challenging, even though those programs did an excellent job at customizing the remote functions, still the on screen icons were too small to really make it an enjoyable experience... Enter Windows 8...... -Yes, it's optimized for touch screen, and it has large, clickable icons ( check ). -It's entirely usable without a keyboard at all ( check ). -It has a side bar with large icons to perform search and other basic windows functions ( check ), -It has a virtual on screen keyboard !!!! ( check ). Are you following me ? Tonight I'll try to install " Wiimouse " and " Wiinremote" on my Windows 8 laptop ( I hope they work, they should because they worked on W7 ), hock it up to my HDTV with the HDMI cable, switch on the Wii sensor bar ( I still have to get me one of those cheap wireless one, but that's not a problem ) and sit back on the couch and experience the ultimate Windows 8 experience !! Did Microsoft really think of this ?
