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).

I'm not sure that's going to wor..


It won't. For every tablet sale they get there will be hundred Windows 7 users who don't upgrade because they rightly see Windows 8 as a waste of time. They'll never make up the lost revenue and it will show up in their statements.

The tablet market is mainly an ipad market and Windows 8 won't change that.
