Hopefully, they can deal with the interface problem concerning desktops.
i tried installing the release preview of Windows 8 yesterday. there's a lot to be done before you can see the new interface. Aside from logging in using domain or local user account, you may also use your Windows Live ID, how cool is that. And after you login, the first thing that will show up is the metro style UI. It is the new start menu. hehe.. In order for you to have a satisfaction experience with Windows 8, your monitor should be a touchscreen enabled device.
Basically, Windows 8 great enhancement is the idea to combine the traditional computing (keyboard and mouse) with the latest by using your finger.
Still looking forward for the final version.
Windows 8 now on RTM
Today, I am excited to announce that Windows 8 has been released to manufacturing (RTM)! This means we’ve completed the product development and testing of the product and have started handing off the final code to our OEM partners. They can now begin preparing new Windows 8 PCs and devices they’ll introduce starting with General Availability. For more on RTM, I suggest reading this blog post from Steven Sinofsky on the Building Windows 8 blog.
OS X? Ugh.... they should name it after Swiss Cheeses rather than cats.
An earlier review: "Windows 8 Consumer Preview - One word: fail"
More recent ones:
"Windows 8 review: Yes, it's that bad"
"Review: Windows 8 a big misstep for Microsoft"
"Windows 8 Review: Incredibly Innovative, Incredibly Important, Not Quite Incredible"
A point raised by another game exec: "Windows 8 is 'not awesome for Blizzard either' says studio exec"
Why can't the company fix the problem themselves? Why rely on others to do that?
can't wait to see how the fnished product is when they release it. although pretty happy with windows 7
A lot of people bash Windows 8 because the Start button is gone. But you can probably count people who uses and navigate the Start button. Most of us just click start and type the name of the software or click what we've pinned in the Start.
I've used Windows 8 Consumer preview and kahit dyan sa version na yan you can already search app just by typing. Windows 8 is just addressing the change of consumer market, it's more like of a transition OS. People can still enjoy the mouse and keyboard only that the OS is now more touch friendly. Kaya kung papatok ang Windows 8, papatok na din ang hybrid notebook like the Microsoft Surface, instead of half-baked iPad with its limitation, OS wise.
Plus, mas secure na ang Windows 8 OS from years of constant attack kaya nga masasabi ko na mas ok talaga ang Windows kasi they put research and investment in security unlike Apple who's just beginning to invest on it or they still feel the sense of invulnerability. The only downside I can think of right now is on the developer side since nag-iba na naman yata ang Windows 8 from Win32 which could potentially turn off MS Developers. Although I would love to explore the new dev.
But isn't that also a problem with Win 8? Several more are mentioned in the links provided earlier.
It's clear that the internals are fine, but I don't understand why they can't come up with alternatives for the UI, as the present one looks designed for tablets and similar devices.
kung ayaw niyo ng windows pwede kayo gumamit ng linux or mac.
So Windows 8 is also good for Desktop PCs, even though Desktop doesn't have touch screen features?..
I can't imagine myself navigating Apps on Windows 8 using mouse only with Metro UI.. It looks like Windows Media Center.. Compare to the current UI we're using , it is much better, like for example Windows 7..
Well hopefully that this OS will succeed though I doubt that because of MS's target in capturing Tablet market by releasing this Tablet-styled Win8/RT. I doubt that traditional Desktop PC user can able to adopt this new UI. Well that's just my thought..
At this early stage, I don't think this Metro Ui for Windows 8 is a good idea, they'd better stick to the default UI of Windows..
Windows 8 is designed for tablets, MS admits that and therefore not a good OS for Desktop users. Guys we better stick to Win7 until Ms realize it's mistakes like on vista..
