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.

The speed is really great and it seems to lees memory/resource intensive than 7. What I dream is Windows 7.5 - with the speed of 8 and UI from 7 ;) Hopefully some happy hackers community will make it happen. Probably sooner or later someone will find those 2 or 3 magical registry entries that turn off Metro and bring back classic start menu. Then I'll switch!
