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).

Basically:

Any pro Windows 8 comment gets downvoted to oblivion.
Any sky is falling, general purpose computing, metro sucks for productivity comment is upvoted to the sky.

This site, and most people who comment here, are almost uniquely incompatible with Windows 8. It goes against everything they stand for and believe in.

A lot of it is wildly fanatical and hyperbolic, which is a shame, because others are actually pretty insightful. Thom is more moderated in his criticism and its appreciated, but others go completely off the scale.
