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've been trying Windows 8 on two systems. It's not terrible, but I don't see much improvement over Windows 7 outside of the obvious user interface changes. I'll admit the new interface is useful for consuming content, but I don't like it for getting real work done. Most of the documentation i've seen has been on the user interface and the metro toolkit stuff. If you have a reference that explains any changes they've made under the hood, I'd be happy to look at it. Otherwise, I stand behind what i've said.
