Windows Paul Allen, one of Microsoft's co-founders who left the company long ago, has posted on his blog about his experiences with Windows 8. He (surprise) likes it, but he does note a number of shortcomings and oddities - all of which are spot-on. However, he fails to address the core issue with Windows 8: it's forcing users to drill a small hole in the wall with a belt sander.

I've been using Windows 8 since December, developing a game which is scheduled as a launch title, and i like it. For a power user, Metro is like a super fast start menu. I don't care much for metro apps, except maybe for games since those are fullscreen anyway, but the desktop is great for power users. Improved copy dialogs, improved explorer and much faster. I even went and installed RTM on my home laptop this weekend. I'll grant you this though, Thom, it's made some big progress from Developer Preview to RTM. Even Release Preview was pretty rough around the edges. I do agree with Paul in that the Puzzling points he has are probably my only issues with the OS.

Also it's kinda nice being able to play Wordfeud in Windows ;)
