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 used MacOS X 10.0

Unlike Windows 8... MacOS X 10.0 actually functioned. It was bare bones, and lacked features, but there was nothing functionally wrong with it. It even had a functional Unix layer.

Windows 8 barely functions. In order to do anything with you have to actually fight with the interface... and when you finally get there, it's a dogs breakfast.

Hell. Rhapsody DR2 was lightyears better than Windows 8 RC
