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).

That said, POP and IMAP are dying protocols.


To be replaced with what exactly??

Quite a few people think IMAP and POP should die and be replaced by web based mail. However, all those web based mail programs use either POP or IMAP to talk to the mail server!

GMail and iCloud use IMAP for their web interfaces. GMail doesn't replace IMAP, it uses it.
