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).

Having said that, Apple was still pushing OS 9 (until 10.1)

"Reluctantly offering it for lack of better option" is probably closer to what was happening... (OS9 itself having quite a number of issues)

Oh, and "no floppy drives - use internet" led, I believe, to a large spike in the sales of external drives. :p

at least MS is trying something, doing something, not just seeing what Apple is doing and following (as has been their way from time to time)

But at least as often not really, maybe even also a bit the other way around ...Office, browser, Xbox, AD/Sharepoint stuff, mobile OS.
