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).

And it is always interesting to see so many people who can't cope with change to become so emotionally vested on a field like IT, where change happens at almost exponential rates.

I'm not seeing that actually.

I'm seeing people who deal with change on a daily basis and can distinguish productive change from change as part of a corporate strategy that doesn't benefit end users

Embracing all change is idiotic. Or may be you think the people who rejected Microsoft Bob early on were afraid of change.
