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.

I tried it

I tried the RTM but was incredibly frustrated with it. Metro is very limited and everything takes more mouse clicks. It is a shame. Microsoft can get things right. Just look at the new Hotmail/Outlook webmail. It is very nice and a pleasure to use. My home is a mixture of Windows and Linux. Now that Windows and Gnome have both taken the wrong paths I will be running Cinnamon on the Linux boxes and will wait for a third party fix for Metro before I consider upgrading my Windows boxes.
