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'm saving that article, along with all the other similar ones. This is hugely similar to the Xbox, iPod and XP start menu rants.

The people saying the start screen is a disaster are the same ones that didn't adapt to the XP start menu and changed it back to the classic one.

In my opinion, the start screen is a great feature. I'm not so sure about the Metro apps, but I suppose alternatives will start appearing.
