Windows Jeff Atwood: "In the post PC era, Microsoft is betting the company on Windows 8, desperately trying to serve two masters with one operating system. The traditional mouse and keyboard desktop is no longer the default; it is still there, but slightly hidden from view, as the realm of computer nuts, power users, and geeks. For everyone else, the Metro UI puts an all new, highly visual touch and tablet friendly face on the old beige Wintel box. Will Microsoft succeed? I'm not sure yet. But based on what I've seen so far of Windows 8, its pricing, and the new Surface hardware - I'm cautiously optimistic." So am I. However, a lot - and I mean a lot as in 'everything' - will depend on the quality of the Metro applications. So far, the quality has been utterly abysmal, both for first and third party ones. Microsoft is promising Metro application goodness for RTM, but I'll believe it when I see it.

Member since:

it was a a bit of trolling, I was making the point really that FreeBSD would be too much for someone to bother setting up.

It was a trite response, because tbh andih is a massive freetard and Microsoft hater.

As Linus says: "Microsoft hatred is a disease."

Frankly I find it boring and dismayed that any thread that is either about Microsoft or Windows has lots of people loathing it.
