Evening Tech Bits

2. Re: windows 8 Mar 2, 2012, 21:37 Shok
From the Windows 8-Ball Consumer Preview article:

In its current form, I feel Windows 8 is woefully inadequate for desktop power users.

That about sums it up for my experience with Windows 8 as well. I just installed it on an old laptop to see what it was like and it's a joke. There is no option to boot to desktop mode. Windows XP let you go back to the older 98/2k windows theme (although I never did). In Win8 it's their metro ui or nothing apparently.

Windows 8 feels like a console version of an operating system.
