Windows Wednesday was the big day for Microsoft - the largest overhaul of its operating system since Windows 95 (heck, I'd argue the overhaul is far larger than Windows 95) went into consumer preview. I've been running it on my Asus ZenBook since its release, and in all honesty, it's not as arduous as I expected. I'm not planning on doing a full review, but I do want to mention a number of things - both positive and negative - that stood out to me.

I am absolutely skipping it. There is no gain for me switching from windows 7 to 8 if the whole desktop paradigm is shifting for the sake of integrating it with tablets. I don't use tablets for anything serious, and when I want to get stuff done, I just run an app launcher and powershell/SSH.

Might be great with the responsiveness or whatever, but I am not part of the crowd this OS attracts.
