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).

1. Windows still has Desktop Mode.
2. A great majority of Windows sales are preinstalled on new devices. If you look at Computex 2012, there were dozens (literally, dozens) of devices shown. From tablets, to laptops with touchscreens, to touchscreen all in ones, to convertible tablet hybrids.

3. Making design decisions today using statistics that may not hold true a few years in is foolish. Maybe TODAY tablets haven't surpassed general purpose PC sales but what do the trends look like?
