Windows 8 may have a different look and feel and may have a usability issue for some but what's more important is that the OS is improved substantially. Suddenly programs that didn't work on Windows Vista work again and data I thought I couldn't use anymore is accesible again. My complements.
Don't you wonder, Paul, if the toady realizes that comparing 8 and Vista for purposes of determining superiority of one over the other is equivalent to comparing a dog turd to a cowpat for the same reason...?
I agree. Windows 8 does run pretty good. It's less resource intensive since Microsoft ditched Aero. Also it's compatible with more hardware than Vista. Windows 8 could have been a really good OS. But then, they totally hosed it with the Metro graphical interface. What a shame.
