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).

Member since:

But remember when Apple did this the Mac was a blip on the user radar, they didn't have a billion users to deal with and the change actually made the Mac OS way more popular to the regular user

Mac is still a blip on the radar - just not in few atypical places (where it was similarly sort-of-popular already back then). Look at global Statcounter percentages... (even better: while filtering out Canada, US, Autralia, NZ, and few EU countries)

Ms waits till their most popular version of Windows ever, the comeback from Vista

That "most popular version of Windows" is just VistaSE... people might yet praise Win9, even if it'll be just Win8SE/Metro 2.0.
