This gentleman has gone through Windows 8.1 Preview and completely found every possible inkling wrong with it. For the most part, I have looked forward to the technical changes in 8.1 that, perhaps, might increase the stability of the kernel when interacting with rogue drivers. You know, something that doesn't involve animated wallpapers or floating buttons. I actually found his review to be interesting, somewhat constructive criticism of what is going on with Windows 8.1. What do you think happened with Windows 8? Did Microsoft get the message that "People don't like the user interface" and then went crazy trying to fix it with 8.1? Because most of these changes are, indeed, what we call in development "eye candy". What do you think of this guy's review? Is it unfair? Good, bad, ugly? Some truth to it? My inclination has always been to reserve a judgement call until that horse has already left the proverbial barn. The software that he is reviewing is in an incomplete state. However, there seems to be some truth in at least some of his gripes. I thought I'd open this for conversation. You know.. conversation, not arguing You decide.
