Windows ActiveWin.com 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."

What does "power-user" mean to you?


In a broad sense, I classify users into 3 different categories:

- Tech tard: How does this f**king app work?

- Power user: What are the shortcut keys? How do I customize the toolbar? Is it scriptable?

- Geek: What toolkit was this app written in? Is it open source?
