Windows has just posted their 45-page, 40-screenshot review of Microsoft Windows 8. The review covers many different aspects of the OS including performance, security, application compatibility, and more. "Is Windows 8 a hit or miss? It's a hit, it is clearly Microsoft's most bold development in years, it probably beats out the transition from Program Manager (Windows 3X) to Windows 95, the move from Windows 9x to the NT Kernel. The Windows 8 platform represents so many things: truly touch centric, support for modern processor architectures, fast and fluid as Microsoft puts it and also represents where the majority of the world is heading when it comes to computing, entirely mobile."

Faster at what exactly? Booting into the unwanted Metro screen?

Programs are already pre-cached in Windows 7.

Don't fall for the unnoticeable benchmarks trap. Geeks have been falling for that in browser benchmarks for years.

Windows 8 is a POS. Metro is the worst aspect and what users will notice first and then continually. It's fucking adware.

Fuck Windows 8. The world will agree with me.
