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).

8 up votes? WTH, OSnews crowd does not know its history anymore. I hate Windows 8 with a passion, but compared too MacOSX 10.0 it is fast, stable, finished and functional.

10.0 was an utterly broken 0.1 in reality, way worse than KDE 4.0.
