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.

RE[4]: Musings about Metro

As I mentioned in another post, the previews DID permit the restoration of the start menu through a registry hack, but microsoft is so adamant that we don't have this choice in win8 that they removed the code entirely.

Oh it's worse than that, Sinfosky lied and said that enterprise and business versions of Windows would have Metro off by default. Now it's on fucking WINDOWS SERVER. What a glowing endorsement, forcing that crappy interface on their server OS.

Sinofsky probably realized that pirates would go after enterprise and server if it didn't have Metro. LOCK EM IN DERP DERP.

Oh well at least this idiotic plan will soon meet with reality and then shareholders will want Ballmer's head on a platter. Goodbye bozo.
