For the record, this isn’t a “review” at all. It is a simple blog post revealing information that we can expect Windows 8 to be officially available in October. But, to the extent this is an assessment of Windows 8 at all, I wouldn’t call this a rave review. Most of this post is dedicated to explaining things I don’t like about Windows 8, and why I prefer Windows 7 so far.
I do disagree with you in respect to the OSs slowing down over time, and the failure of Vista was a marketing failure more than a failure of the OS. I definitely agree with you on the diversity of product offerings. I’ll go one further and say there should only be one. Arguably, the home users need security features more than the enterprise, yet they’re always stripped from the home versions. Just make Ultimate for everyone.
Windows 7 is awesome. I’m just not sure Windows 8 has what it takes to usurp the throne from Windows 7.]]>
