The Retarded new start menu interface: sure, it makes access on a tablet much easier, but Microsoft fails to realize that NOT EVERYONE WILL HAVE A FRIGGING TABLET! On a traditional screen, it just makes it harder.
I agree completely. I don't plan on purchasing a tablet anytime soon.
This will be the last x86 version of Windows. Make of that what you will; I see it as major compatibility problems for the version of Windows after 8 (As in, somewhat new computers that are 32-bit that would otherwise be able to run Windows IX being turned down because it requires 64-bit power).
32-bit is dying, and will be as dead as 16-bit by that time that we get to Windows 9 and 10.
They re-arranged everything AGAIN! Just after everyone got used to Windows 7's screwed up new arrangement too... Keeping computer users on their toes is how they roll, I guess...
Well, the interface has to change somewhat but it is annoying that everything got rearranged completely again.
... Looks like now would be the prime time to download Linux or to purchase a Mac (or to create a Hackintosh).
The outlook for Windows-based PC's looks bleak.
Yeah, I really wish that they would take the interface back to basics. I loved the interfaces of Windows 2000 and XP. They were nice and utilitarian without being so basic as to be unintuitive.
That will never happen though, because they're marketing their computers to the wider audience (AKA people who know nothing about computers and are impressed by touchscreens and blinking lights).
