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).

Windows 8 on non touchscreen devices could be a great thing if Microsoft would allow it. Metro on a touchscreen device is pretty awesome (speaking from personal experience).

Metro on Windows 8 on a desktop PC, however, feels like an abomination. I suppose I'll get used to it so I can support customers with new PCs but I'll never use it for any mission critical work. I think I'll be content to let it live in a virtual machine.

Yes I agree. I should have been more accurate. I meant on the desktop. I don't have an opinion regarding tablets since I haven't used it on one.
