Windows The Windows 8 release Preview has been released, so go out and get it, test it, and wax lyrically, or complain loudly. I'm installing it as we speak, so no word, thoughts, or impressions from me yet. Like it or hate it, at least have fun, folks.

Woah-hoho Trollholio, how about at least giving UZ64 an opportunity to respond before going to the bottom of the barrel with petty personalized insults that make you look more like an astroturfing shill then offering reasonable objections... While I don't personally find any OS warrants 'hate', there are several 'features' of Windows 8 that are far from 'benefits' and are not a move forward in terms of progress making DOS an apt comparison.

The fact UI forces you to use components of the Metro interface that will not allow you to multi-task/multi-window while accessing those 'features' of the OS will be a complete deal-breaker and failure of epic scale in many production environments. Of course for as a passive interface trash/to for 'consumption' and push marketing Windows 8 us a marvel at selling bullshit to the willfully blind.
