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.

Considering it's a copy paste from webos, GNOME 3 most certainly is a touch interface. Actually if microsoft was so worried to get a unified look and feel they'd only need to copy webos too, considering the cards view is a dumbed down windows view. While I applaud them for wanting to try something really really new, the windows or card paradigm actually works quite well. The windows snap functions are really usefull and a good systemtray and taskbar can do miracles. Just to say, MS does not need a new interface, they could have gone with a les disturbing evolution of their old one, retaining the connection with their power users and attracting new users to tablets and phones.
