Windows 8 Rotation Support

Microsoft didn’t show much of Window-8-for-tablets running in portrait orientation in yesterday’s keynote, and, in fact, later emphasized that landscape is Windows 8’s primary orientation. But it definitely supports on-the-fly rotation.

I was curious what the animation would look like, and WinRumors has a good video showing it in action. Unlike iOS, on-screen elements don’t move; instead it’s a fade-out/fade-in thing.
