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).

Member since:

Also all the products that Microsoft has used the metro style UI on have failed. The Zune? Windows Phone?

I like how you say "all", implying many, then name just two items. And Zune failed because of Metro? You REALLY believe that?

BTW, Xbox is a great success, and it uses Metro.
And Windows Phone usage is steadily increasing, so you might be premature in celbrating its "failure" just yet.

Normally I ignore your posts, since your very user name screams "I'm a troll", but I made an exception in this case.
