Microsoft, Windows 8
Hi all, Windows 8 is here and products are about to start shipping with the new OS from Windows in large quantities. But why do you care? In the history of Microsoft their product releases tend to follow the Star Trek formula where every other release is terrible. If we walk this through we have Windows 2000, which was great. Then there was ME, which was terrible. Then there was XP, which was great. Then there was Vista, which was the most horrible OS known to man. Windows 7 followed, which is fantastic. Now we have Windows 8 and Microsoft is due to throw out another bomb.
Personally, I haven’t seen anything in Windows 8 that I need or want. In fact I have seen a lot that I don’t like such as the Metro interface on servers or the removal of the Start button. Microsoft works so hard to get people to use something and their feet are firmly planted on the feature they rip it right out from under them. Ok, that was my rant. These links below don’t disagree with me though.
Until next time,
