Re: [WIN8] Windows 8 Review He makes rather weak points. He takes a minor issue (which to be sure Win 8 has a few of) then proceeds to expand it beyond the reality to support his personal feelings about the OS. A simplistic, distorted analysis bordering on being a "propaganda" piece.
Without a doubt, MS's attempt to create an "all-in-one" OS, capable of running on traditional desktops/laptops, touch screen computers, tablets, and smart phones has been an ambitious attempt with somewhat uneven results.
Win 8 has some rough edges to be sure, but it is not without merit, and certainly I find no problem using it productively in both work applications as well as for personal use.
Since I do not have a touch screen laptop, and am happy with android for my tablet & smart phone, I do not find Win 8 particularly compelling for me, although I do have it installed on my notebook, however, it works well enough, and I really have no major complaints (a few minor ones).
Frankly, the guy comes across as a whiner.
Deeds, not words
