Windows Adrian Kingsley-Hughes pens a rant on Windows 8, calling it 'awful': "I'm now ready to sum up my Windows 8 experience with a single word: awful. I could have chosen a number of other words - terrible, horrible, painful and execrable all spring to mind - but it doesn't matter, the sentiment is the same." I've been using Windows 8 Release Preview on both my ZenBook and my regular desktop since its release, and here's my short review: "I like it." Issues a-plenty, but for what is essentially a 1.0 release - not bad. It's a hell of a lot better than other releases which were similar in scope (Mac OS X 10.0, KDE 4.0).

Because calling a alpha/beta release "4.0" is retarded and counter intuitive. Deal with it - they deserved it.

Why are we regurgitating the same old sh!t again? If you didn't notice, KDE is quite mature and stable now. I don't see anyone moaning about OS X 10.0 today. That's because everyone moved on to what's currently available.

Living in the past instead of using what's available now gets us nowhere in this discussion.

Hehe.

When comparing something BrandNew (tm), then you should compare stable editions of beta editions, or whatever point-in-the-app-life you choose.

That's why you want to go back to the past. So comparision is right.
