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.

Perhaps they're expecting power users to purchase Windows Server from now on since they're so accustomed to having server functionality in linux/mac desktops.

Or does Windows Server get the Fisher Price treatment as well?

Actually Windows Server 2012 will have the metro interface too, with touch gestures, hot corners, app store etc.

Microsoft must be the first company who tries to put a phone interface on a server OS.
