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.

Windows 95... nice.
Windows 98... even better.
Windows Me... absolute shit.
Windows XP... decent, but relatively shitty until SP2.
Windows Vista... absolute shit.
Windows 7... decent; surprising recovery from the the preceding atrocity.
Windows 8... absolute shit, which has gone so far off the deep end that it probably can't be saved.

Hm...

95 - shit, but since there was really nothing else suitable...
98 - bearable; 98SE - I can live that
Me - with that even more, as long as one remembers (unlike many) that it has a bit too many changes from earlier 9x, and so the old tricks tend to brake the system
XP - more of quite decent 2k, with tweaks here and there
Vista - some hiccups at the start, mostly from driver turmoil; very decent after service pack
Win7 - virtually the same OS as service packed Vista, people get captured by "7 magical number" thinking
Win8 ...oh well, perhaps analogous to 1.x or 2.x, I suppose; but afterwards, 3.x was quite likeable ans spearheaded the way for later domination.


Ultimately, every of those of versions will fall under "good old times effect" - you already do that with 9x. In 2030s many will probably do that with Win8.
