Windows "Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8. Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store." I'm still not clear on what '12:01 AM local time' means, but if it means it goes on sale in every country on 12:01 AM, I'll be buying in a bit over an hour!

You're not serious right?

Remember when Vista came out, XP suddenly became the most loved OS of all time amongst the Windows fans.

I remember 95 coming out, and 98. I remember even though XP was panned much like Win8 is, it was still the favoured child by quite a few.

There are fanbois for all the big OS's, Win, Linux and OS X. If you sit on one side of the fence, then you'll notice the other fans more, that's just how it is.

Linux and MS fans find Apple fans more annoying because they simply don't agree with them, that's all. It works the other ways too.

I find Linux fans just as annoying as Apple fans because both groups won't stop trying to ram it down peoples throats.

At least Apple fans have a platform that can actualy be used in a large market....Linux fans pretend that they have such an OS.

All of this is meaningless anyway since Mobil computing is the future and only mobile OSs can "take over the world"....Thanks to Google, Linux has broken out...too bad you can't tell it is Linux.
