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.

Really Happy With Windows 8

I've been using Windows 8 for a while and really like it. I did find the metro thing strange, but thats coming from an Old School point of view. After setting stuff how I like it, I've found its really easy to use, also if you want to you can download apps to do stuff from the classic desktop. I have also found it to be faster than XP and although I was a major Linux fan I am no longer using Linux due to stagnation and lack of marketshare growth with Linux overall on the desktop. Plus it's a lot easier to develop for Windows and actually get paid for your work.
