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 absolutely hate the mail app. No IMAP support? No POP? Really MS?


No, not really. Read the recent Building Windows 8 blog entry on the mail app, and you see: "Don’t worry, support for other protocols, such as IMAP, are on the way." [/q]

That said, POP and IMAP are dying protocols.
