TNW Quick Hit:

The Windows 8 nectar will not stop flowing, even if it is Friday. Today we have quite a treat for you: live video of the Windows 8 login process and windows transitions.

A fair warning, there is a slightly NSFW image in the video. It’s not porn, but it is, ahem, phallic. You might not want to watch this at work if your boss is a hardass.

Of course, rumors have been flying for ages that Windows 8 will include a user interface that is strongly influenced by the Metro design ethos, and this video seems to confirm it.

Are you going to upgrade? Via our friends over at Compixles.
