Philip Greenspun reviews Windows 8

Greenspun:

“Suppose that you are an expert user of Windows NT/XP/Vista/7, an expert user of an iPad, and an expert user of an Android phone…. you will have no idea how to use Windows 8.”

It goes on from there:

“Confused about how the tablet apps work and want to Google for the answer? You go to a Web browser in the desktop interface and can’t see the tablet interface that you’re getting advice on how to use. Keep your old Windows 7 machine adjacent so that you can Google for ‘How to use Windows 8’ on the old computer and have the pages continuously visible.”

He also compares the Windows 8 interface to “a dog’s breakfast.” Goodness.
