Windows "Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8. Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store." I'm still not clear on what '12:01 AM local time' means, but if it means it goes on sale in every country on 12:01 AM, I'll be buying in a bit over an hour!

Maybe that was true here on OSNews, but I distinctly recall Windows 2000 being lauded as the best software to ever hit a PC back in its heyday. In fact, the current "Windows 7 is awesome, Windows 8 sucks balls" attitude that is frequently displayed here and elsewhere mirrors the "2000 vs XP" attitude back in those days.

The question is, will 8 be like XP and evolve into a useful OS over time?
