"Bold step backwards 30 years just to force upgrades."0.5 starson by wessonjoe
Pros: snazzy and quick
Cons: oppressive dashboard full of 2-dimensional news-flash-centered pictures
even more of the OS is hidden and useless
other than a redesigned interface, what's new and needed??
Summary: When the first beta came out i was hoping for a great OS since Win7 was so hot. Then i saw it and decided i didn't want a giant phone on my desk. This bold step backwards 30 years just to lock newcomers into a new Microsoft ecosystem and force others to upgrade is not acceptable. My time is spent mostly with multimedia creation and media file manipulation. So this new tiled interface and completely new way of doing things doesn't appeal to me at all. The word from Microsoft for us programmers to rewrite our code to work with the new OS made me gag. So this new OS is a dead duck for me. Nothing more to see, move along, move along.
