Windows Adrian Kingsley-Hughes pens a rant on Windows 8, calling it 'awful': "I'm now ready to sum up my Windows 8 experience with a single word: awful. I could have chosen a number of other words - terrible, horrible, painful and execrable all spring to mind - but it doesn't matter, the sentiment is the same." I've been using Windows 8 Release Preview on both my ZenBook and my regular desktop since its release, and here's my short review: "I like it." Issues a-plenty, but for what is essentially a 1.0 release - not bad. It's a hell of a lot better than other releases which were similar in scope (Mac OS X 10.0, KDE 4.0).

I don't dislike it (I'm fine with win7), but I can't help to feel that win8 is not really an improvement. Windows versions have improved always sightly by improving and adjusting the user experience.

This one feels more like Microsoft trying to force the desktop users to become familiar with their mobile interface, just for the sake of it so they choose mobile Microsoft products in the future, because of familiarity.

I'm not sure that's going to work..
