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).

Well, that's because you're using an "admin tool".
That's like complaining that there are some settings that require the command line to manipulate. If you're going into those low-level settings, then you're going to have to use low-level utilities. Microsoft doesn't want a bunch of esoteric control panel settings to pollute Metro interface. Anyone that needs to manipulate those settings will have to get their hands dirty and drop down the lower-level interfaces.
