Windows Paul Allen, one of Microsoft's co-founders who left the company long ago, has posted on his blog about his experiences with Windows 8. He (surprise) likes it, but he does note a number of shortcomings and oddities - all of which are spot-on. However, he fails to address the core issue with Windows 8: it's forcing users to drill a small hole in the wall with a belt sander.

"Bloat" == "Features I don't use."

But seriously, what features are you talking about? I tend to use new features, and only the bad ones I ignore.

Hell, I even used Active Desktop for a while.

Actually I was thinking about active Desktop ;) . Still I'm not saying those features are useless is just that the majority of people doesn't need them.

And I have to take the majority side this time because I realize a few years ago how a douchebag's can geeks like us be, we criticize everyone who cannot use a computer and call them retards (just to point a phrase a few post back) but I think we are the retards, is like if medics criticize the rest of us because we cannot do a surgery or prescript the right drugs. We are computer literate because that is what we do, our lives and careers circle around it, but not the rest of the people.
