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).

Wrong. OS X 10.0 ran like treacle on then modern hardware (and I bet it would on today's hardware as well), whereas Win8 is pretty damn fast on anything that can run Win7. Fighting the interface is always the Wrong Way to do something, so you should rather adapt than criticising something for not responding well to the wrong input. It's not like it's hard to use or anything.
