Windows 8

Hi folks! So Windows 8 will be released on October 26th, 2012. I predict that this new UI will not be accepted well. Trying to mash a touch screen like interface onto computers without a touch screen just doesn’t make much sense to me. But that’s just my opinion.

Other things I don’t like? Let’s try the Start Screen for instance. Getting rid of the start button just seems like a silly idea if you ask me. If anything this whole Start Screen idea is just going to cause a whole lot of clutter for no good reason.

Good things about the new OS? Well it will features more integration with online services which should make things easier for users. However I can’t help but feel apprehensive about this latest release. I love Windows 7 and I’m afraid Windows 8 is just going to be another Vista. I guess time will tell.
