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).

Xbox sales went up because of the redesign, Kinect bundles making it appealing to a wider audience, and price drops.

The Metro UI on it is widely hated. It's much slower than the old UI, both in terms of how quickly you can access what you're looking for and in screen loading time. The only positive I've heard about it is people with Kinect seem to like the new Bing voice search.
