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).

KDE 4.0 is *your own fault*

People slagging off on KDE 4.0 gets really old. The KDE devs were clearly saying that 4.0 was *not* a consumer release but rather a development release to allow a wider audience of developers to get their hands dirty working on it. It was just a release to mark the direction of the product so that it was clear to developers what KDE 4 actually was.

It wasn't a Gnome 3.0 release where the developers were just stubborn and refusing to attempt to implement older functionality... Surprise! This is now your desktop! We heard you like paradigm changes so we put a usage paradigm in your usage paradigm so you can use your paradigm while you paradigm.

Well then they shouldn't have called it 4.0, as that implies a stable mature release for users...
It should have been called 3.9, or 4.0 beta, or 4.0 developer preview etc.
