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.

Bye, bye, PC market

Microsoft has clearly decided on relegating the PC market to 2nd class citizen status and focusing on trying to stay relevant in the new "mobile device" market at all costs.
I think, though, that they've forgotten about one big aspect of the PC market that helps keep them afloat: the enterprise. Practically anywhere you go in business, you'll see Windows PCs running thousands of purpose-built apps that don't fit anywhere in the new Metro-ized world of Microsoft. By making the desktop just a "legacy" app in W8, they've basically given all of these customers (who pay really good money!) the finger.
