Windows Now that Windows 8 has gone gold, Microsoft can move on to other things. With Windows 8, the most important of these is probably to make sure people know how to actually use it. Metro is filled to the brim with hard-to-discover features, but Microsoft has a plan. Will it be enough?

No the criticism of X is well deserved.

KDE is a poor copy of the Windows interface but it gets the job done. You click on programs to run them, use the taskbar to switch between them, etc. The real problem is that it sits on X.

X still has weird issues with resolution changes, multi-monitors, and worse can leave Granny in a command prompt if there is a video crash.

It also still has problems with font aliasing, video playback, and clipping. It sucks.
