A recent Youtube video was released by LockerGnome that shows an interesting problem that many Windows 8 users will face: how is Windows 8 used? In the video, the father of the man who runs LockerGnome is set in front of Windows 8 and asked to use it. He goes in not totally computer illiterate, but obviously he's not a power user like most of us are. This video is a demonstration to show one of the major weaknesses of Windows 8's new user interface: it's extremely different. I'm sure the official release of Windows 8 will have a tutorial, but it will still aggravate many people who aren't so adept at computers.
