Couple days ago I have upgraded to Windows 8. I was curious how this new OS will do compared to Win 7. However, I was disappointed.
<strong>Windows 8 is the worst OS I have ever worked on from design viewpoint. </strong>
It is a terrible mix of Windows 7 and mobile OS. Although Metro interface might be intuitive, the OS was not ready for hiding the search capability to reach programs one uses. You do not have to copy everything, Microsoft. Not everyone wants touch interface, which is extremely ugly in Microsoft’s Store on 1900x resolution.
On the bright side, I can think that Win 8 will be ok for mobile devices. There I see a chance for adoption and it might be a success. Sadly, The Metro interface will not go away as PCs are less and less of interest. Thus no, I will not switch to Win 7, and will try to search for more good things in the last Microsoft OS. Maybe there are some 🙂
