I find the left-corner-left-bar-switch pretty natural to use, even with a mouse.

Stealth Microsoft has their head up their asses and is pretending like Windows 8 is great.

So you expect them to say that it's terrible?

Hey guys, yeah I'm still around.

I haven't looked much into the new Windows 8 (no I'm not going to try the demo), but... this Metro thing, is it supposed to allow apps to run on a PC _and_ tablets / smartphones too? That would sound pretty cool - but they need to get the interface right, and intuitive. Sorry Windows, the iPhone did do that right (very right). Plus, it might work better if they were in some kind of emulator-looking program, instead of being apps in themselves. But I dunno.

I'm a bit skeptical of buying Windows 8, especially after the flop that Microsoft had with Vista. With all the changes they made under the hood, much of it caused problems. But I was surprised at how fast Windows 7 became a reality. I only heard of it and like a month later it was the norm - which was critical because Vista wasn't passing the test. I'm thinking that this may happen again, and Windows 9 won't be that far off. Maybe Microsoft needs this / intends for this to happen, as it really lets them see how people like the changes to Windows.

So I'll hold my opinions on Windows 8 until it becomes widely available and the normal for new systems.
