Anyone else checked out the Windows 8 preview?
I think it blows. The initial screen is now the Start Page, little tiles to access everything. Might be the way to go on a tablet, but it sends ppl back to the “desktop with thousands of icons” clutter mentality.
You now find the icon called Desktop to get your desktop, and it comes with NOTHING THERE. Install a program, you better put an icon on the desktop or you need to find it.
A return to Explorer. Not IE, but explorer.exe that everyone is used to being a built-in function of the old start button. Now you must move your pointer to the top right corner and more things appear. Pick Start, find and click Explorer and there’s your documents, downloads, etc.
Go back to the top corner and find Settings in the menu, find Power and click shut down.
Another 'let’s copy a Mac (this time iPad?) but get everything wrong" effort like Vista. Three clicks to do what took one.
