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.

Isn't it amazing what some people will put up with to run Windows on their desktops & laptops?

I'm sure we'll be treated to plenty of blogs, reviews, and articles on how this is "the greatest Windows ever!"

BLAH!

Actually, I find it much more amazing that some people just have to pop in every time there is any mention of Windows/OSX/Linux to make posts about how much they hate it without ever actually bothering to give details about why they hate it or why they feel others shouldn't use it, or heck, providing any kind of commentary whatsoever that is in any way worth reading at all.

It says quite a lot about you people, you realize that? No one likes to listen to someone who clearly has an axe to grind; pepper a comment with some insightful thoughts or even just generous amounts anecdotal evidence and you look much more reasonable.
