Windows For weeks - if not months - I've been trying to come up with a way to succinctly and accurately explain why, exactly, Windows 8 rubs me the wrong way, usability-wise. I think I finally got it.

After working with Windows 8 on my laptop, I've been trying out different Linux distros and find they're not that bad! I've got VirtualBox running with Ubuntu 12.04 with the Cinnamon UI. I plan to try Mint 13/Cinnamon as well as Fedora 17/Gnome 3.x. While I'll probably stick with Windows 7 on my main desktop, it's interesting to see what other options are out there which I may use on some older computers I have. I was surprised to find that even the new Linux UIs (Gnome 3, Unity, Cinnamon, etc.) are intuitive and easy to use (at least they work in a way my mind does which Metro does not. That's just my opinion BTW).
