A very quick look at Windows 8

September 15, 2011 Leave a comment

OK, so with most of the rest of the curious digirati, I tried Windows 8 beta developer yadda yadda whatever version that was available yesterday from our, ahem, friends in Redmond.

I never thought I’d see a desktop that would make me appreciate Unity.

Windows 8 is the desktop equivalent of the old guy wearing a striped shirt with his plaid Bermuda shorts and white socks with his sandals.

To quote Forrest Gump, “That’s all I have to say about that.”
