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).

Sit a regular Windows user down in front of it and they are totally confused, its like starting all over from scratch.


Lockergnome did this and the results are on youtube.

Novice users hate the drastic changes, power users hate that the start menu has been replaced with a blinky clusterfuck of icons that they can't avoid. Sounds like a winning combination. Piss off everyone.
