Windows 8 On The Desktop

This is a really in-depth review of Windows 8 after several weeks of pretty intensive use from Peter Bright at ArsTechnica. I have only used Windows 8 personally for (maybe) 10-12 hours all told, but a lot of the things I initially came away with are echoed here, but with a better perspective through extended use. Lots of screenshots and things - and some great comments from the readers, too.

It's still a puzzle to me that Microsoft, with the resources they have, seem to be still struggling a bit with the Windows UI. I guess maybe they get committed to a concept, and when the juggernaut starts picking up speed it's hard to change course. It will be interesting to see what tweaks have been made when the next beta is released
