The gestures of Windows 8 (Consumer preview): part 1

Windows 8 is an interesting mix of touch-based and mouse/keyboard based system. Some aspects are a bit annoying (see my post about the "split personalities" in Win8 to see what I mean!) but others are really interesting from a user experience point of view. In this post, I want to list various gestures I discovered in Windows 8, and ask for your feedback if you have more.

I love the article and learn few new things.

One thing that I think most people are missing is to use "Devices" to print, for example, from Reader app.
