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.

As much as I dislike Gnome Shell and Unity, at least they moved away from the classic desktop while staying consistent.

One of my gripes with the Windows desktop has always been not being able to write on or scroll a non raised window, so you can guess I don't use to work with maximized windows (actually I think the only app I ever maximize is the browser).

I can't say I'm getting too excited by the idea of fullscreen or split as only choices (and then the fact that I find Metro widgets ugly as hell doesn't help, either).

I guess I'll eventually have to deal with Windows8 because of my job, but going by what I've seen and tried so far it'll never be my personal OS of choice.
