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 would agree with you, but it's not just a few morons, it's over half of the tech media, and they have the power to manipulate the public perception of a product. Which is why I'm am coming to the conclusion that Microsoft should bite the bullet, and add a setting to put back the Start Menu and allow booting straight to the desktop. The tech media will trash W8 to no end if they don't do that, and that trashing will indeed seep into the public conscience.
