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 begin to agree with the notion that Microsoft should "cave" and just put back in the damn start menu and an option to boot straight to the desktop, even if it goes against their research which they believe shows that their current plans are better. Just to shut up the whiners and the thech media that is already biased against Microsoft anyway. Otherwise that tech media will do all in their power to trash W8 and make sure it fails, if they can. It may be best to give in to their demands and shut them up.
