Windows Wednesday was the big day for Microsoft - the largest overhaul of its operating system since Windows 95 (heck, I'd argue the overhaul is far larger than Windows 95) went into consumer preview. I've been running it on my Asus ZenBook since its release, and in all honesty, it's not as arduous as I expected. I'm not planning on doing a full review, but I do want to mention a number of things - both positive and negative - that stood out to me.

So far, South Koreans will obviously keep using Windows XP and 7 for extra more years. Yikes.

I think it's time for Microsoft to make a brand new operating system from scratch (no more NT).

What's so bad about NT? Great security, great performance, great stability and it runs on ARM...

MS is active in OS research (Singularity, Midori, Barrelfish, Verve).

They'll be most likely ready (maybe almost more ready than anybody else, with how the rest of the world, really, mostly toys around with Unix), when the time comes. In the meantime, NT is perfectly fine.
