hmmmm put Windows 8 on a VM last night, what a (broken) crock of !@##
OK, up front, I admit it , I hate change , I am still getting over unity/gnome-shell in linux (now on xfce) BUT at least they are consistent with that monstrosity.
Windows 8 is like 2 OS's living in the same hut & neither much like the other one much but play together cos daddy makes them.
Metro is interesting and cool for a phone or a tablet for personal/social stuff but a productivity platform it ain't.
So to do anything else you have to switch to Desktop mode where as per usual they removed or moved the things you used most , so its windows 7 , only broken.
.... why no start button ? what muppet thought that one up? seriously ? whats the gain ? ... nothing, whats the pain .. squillions of confused users.
I have not tried dual screen yet since only in my VM but I can imagine the hot-corners are going to be a PITA on dual 27's ...
In Advance YES I know this is not final release but its more like an unfinished side-project than a final release.
No I wont be using it anyway but my clients will, and sooner or later I am gonna have to come up with something nice to say about it because I sell computers, and when they pull the plug on 7 I have to start making things up .. lest they go buy a mac
funniest thing is that (as a linux advocate) this would have been the perfect launchpad for ubuntu/mint/$flavour if of course it were not for gnome-shell/unity, Ubuntu 10.10 vs Windows 8 ? I could have sold that
