Thoughts About Windows 8 (DevPrev)


Of course, we all know that Windows 8 is not going to look or act just like it is in the dev preview (is was released with devs in mind after all, not even beta testers so there is no room to criticize it for not being a cute as you'd expect) , but you get a general idea. The sleek design of the new start screen looks awesome  simple and easy to work. If you haven't tried it think of it like a windows phone 7, just in a larger screen a physical mouse and keyboard and a butt load of PC applications or... if physical keyboard and mouse isnt your style it will also be a tablet version when release (not sure if the Dev version works on tablet). I haven't gotten to play with it hands on just yet but from what I have seen it looks like an extreme change for Microsoft's Windows operation system, the traditional desktop hasn't been completely wipped out but like i said its only a dev preview, i wouldn't be surprised if they did get rid of it by the time of final released. I'm sure they could incorporate the old school desktop with the new WinPhone7 like start screen. For now it isn't great, but i'm not mad. Just wanting to get a beta hands on when it's ready. Microsoft, call me ;).

I know Windows 8 must have better base drivers, kernel etc... so that's basically what I'm looking for. I know they won't do a complete overhaul of the interface -- or at least I hope they won't, since that start menu they're bragging with SUCKS to be honest...

I absolutely hate the new Windows look. I am used to the good old toolbar look. It's a completely ridiculous change. I mean, they could have changed gracefully, but from 7 to 8 is like going from Linux to OS Lion!
