Design guru: Windows 8 is 'a monster' and 'a tortured soul'

How in hell did anyone even discover how to do that in the first place? They were flailing wildly trying to get something done.

Vista without the charm and usability.

Cool & Clunky?

Sounds like the coolness factor of an iPad with the clunkiness of Microsoft all combined in a walled garden. The worst of all worlds, what could go wrong? Are there Winheads clamoring for this like the iClones drool over the latest gadget from cuppertino?

Window 8, not Windows

since they want everything full screen and make it difficult to have multiple screens.

Re: Windows8 Metro/ModernUI is the most lazy thing in IT ever

Having used Window 8 preview for nearly a year now I can say I won't be recommending anyone to downgrade to this poor version on Windows. Like all even numbered version, wait until Windows 9. I rarely used the Metro/modern interface as it clogs up 50% of the screen with awful colored blocks and makes the other 50% completely useless. Ribbons do not make things easier, they merely waste time with their illogical ordering of useful commands. I'll be sticking with Windows 7 unless 9 shows improvements.

'Dated and cheesy' Aero ripped from Windows 8

except that with Win 3.1 you could actually get to the programs you wanted with a few simple clicks, and not have to do away with the main interface to find anything. Aero is dated and cheesy, lets go back to big color blocks instead.

WTF?

Outsourcing yourself?

The fall of the American Empire began when the Rich starting Outsourcing their own lives. First they send the factories and jobs overseas, now they are leaving as well? The only thing we have left are reality TV non-celebrities, impotent protesters and teabaggers.

Microsoft ejects DVD playback from Windows 8

AZComicGeek

Who even uses Windows Media Player anyway? That's like using IE just because it came with the OS. VLC, Chrome, Firefox, etc were all written to get away from the simple OS crud and create useful programs.

'As seen on TV' claims can't be made about unbranded props

97.3% of advert statistics are just made up.

Much of the human race made up of thieves, says BSA

"The evidence is clear: the way to lower software piracy is by educating businesses and individuals about what is legal – and ramping up enforcement of intellectual property laws to send clearer deterrent signals to the marketplace."

Or lower prices to a reasonable and affordable level. Really? $300 for an OS upgrade from a mistake like Vista? It should have been a upgrade, Win 7 is Vista 2.0, the way it should have been to begin with. Even us beta testers were told 'thanks for the help, now go out and pay full retail'.
