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.

when MS say jump you jump, when they say pay you pay, when they say switch to metro, you switch to metro..

why do people waste their precious time and money on this proprietary crap.
There are good open source GUIs for anybodys taste out there.

I would charge a lot pr hour to use windows 8. And I currently charge pr hour to use windows 7, still I try to avoid it as much as I can. ;)

I cannot help think metro is designed for and by disabled and retarded people...

Stop being an ignoramus and think a little: 1) many people have hardware that works properly only under Windows. 2) many people have software that only works properly under Windows. 3) Windows comes pre-installed on almost all off-the-shelf computers. 4) a familiar name matters to Average Joes.
