Windows For weeks - if not months - I've been trying to come up with a way to succinctly and accurately explain why, exactly, Windows 8 rubs me the wrong way, usability-wise. I think I finally got it.

No, but you can deal with it or not. It just serves to give context in hopes some of you can tone down the vitriol.

I guess windows 7 will be the windows 8 pro edition. I know my company has written WIn 8 off already. It seems strange to me that MS is pissing in the same pool they drink from.

Metro is just about as exciting to me as Dashboard was on OSX. Only no one expected you to get you work done in Dashboard.

It deserves vitriol because it is leaving a big hole for professionals. Even worse than Final Cut X did for video professionals.

Then don't update, I don't know what else you want people to say.

Then Windows 9 will come, slightly polish Windows 8 like 7 did with Vista, and people will go nuts over it, proving how fickle you all really are.

My company did the same, 200k licenses Microsoft will not be collecting for any longer, there are many vendors that sell PC's without an OS so no big deal.
