A Linux desktop and tablet user and Windows 8

Some people think I dislike Windows in the same way some people dislike sports teams-I’m just prejudiced against the New York Yankees, Manchester United, Duke Blue Devils, whoever. Nope. I just dislike operating systems and programs that don’t run well. Over the years, though, Windows has improved. These days, in addition to my Mint Linux desktops, I happily run Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 SP1. Windows 8 though? Oh Lord!

When I installed the Windows 8 Consumer Preview in VirtualBox and natively on another PC, I didn’t have high hopes for it. I’ve been playing with Windows 8 alpha releases for a while now and I found Windows 8, like Vista before it, to be pretty awful. But, I decided to give this latest sample of Windows 8 a fair chance to show me its stuff. Well, I’ve been kicking its tires for almost two weeks now and I’m here to tell you Windows 8, and its Metro interface are as awful as I feared they be.
