Everybody anticipates different things. I suspect that a lot of people in the United States are looking forward to the beginning of November, either because they want to vote or because they’re sick of the presidential campaign and want it to be over. Children might be looking forward to Halloween, because it gives them an excuse to eat too much candy. Dentists might be looking forward to it for the same reason.
I’m looking forward to the launch of Windows 8 on 26 October. Not only is a new operating system always a bit exciting for me, but there are a spate of newfangled computers being released at the same time, ones which supposedly let users take advantage of the new Windows’ many features (e.g. the touch-friendly interface).
Also, I kind of want Sony’s new 20″ windows tablet. Finally, someone makes something for people my size.
