Windows I'm swamped with real-world work at the moment, so you'll have to settle for this quickie: the consumer preview for Windows 8 has been released. Go get it and report in what you find!

what is a waste of real estate? the start screen?


Well, my answer to that is: heeeelll yeaaahhh! Seriously... On a desktop, it just doesn't make any sense. Also, try to install 20-30 non-metro apps and see how it will look... unbelievable.

I'm hoping some 3rd party fellas will quickly make shell replacements available so we can ditch the metro junk.

I only use Windows for [most of my] development at work, but if W8 will remain as it looks now, I'm going to stick with W7 for a long time (since full switch to linux is unfortunately a no-go).
