Windows 7: Windows 8 yuk

Windows 8 yuk

Looks like I will be sticking with Windows 7 Pro when I buy a
new computer. If I can find a 64 bit version by then.
This is a couple of years down the road.

The Metro is a piece of junk designed for kids.
Why does Microsoft perpetually keep on designing bad OSs?
Change is not always good. I know money........
Windows 8 for a programmer is utter nonsense.
My comments are intended to be constructive.

Don't get me wrong as Windows 7 is decent.

Windows 95 - nothing to really compare with
Windows 98 - more windowsish
Windows 2000 - haven't tried, but was very popular
Windows XP - they haven't thought that people like MS so much, they have added a whole new kind of interface
Windows Vista- they thought that they can do anything right - they were wrong, but they've created aero
Windows 7 - MS kicks ass after the failure of vista with the best performing os ever, improoved aero look
Windows 8 - ?

Two words, Developer Preview. Nowhere near feature complete, or how the final will work. You want to test Windows 8, wait until it is at least in beta.
