Quote from: Art on October 11, 2012, 01:34:37 AMWhile waiting for my car to be serviced I just read a pretty extensive review in this month's PC Magazine about Win 8. The review was non-biased and testing appeared to be completely objective. It was the results that were anything but good.Apparently Microsoft is going to do a lot of their own development and building instead of farming a lot out to 3rd party sources. The reviewer along with some other well respected brainiacs believe that Microsoft is soon going to prioritize pretty much everything within the OS to the point that one will HAVE to go through THEM instead of 3rd party vendors. The article stated that such action will certainly "drive people away from Microsoft" to another more forgiving platform. Microsoft's Metro Tiles in Win8 certainly leaves a lot to be desired and seems to be anything BUT user intuitive! Like they threw a different desktop over Win7 and called it Win8. Even with some of the enhancements of this new OS, the article said that the bulk of users would likely stick with their Windows 7 for quite a while. I guess...If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!The word, Linux was brought to mind in a following article along with a detailed description of how far and how well developed it has become. It's also OPEN SOURCE (FREE), installs with a "Live CD" if desired, installs easily and practically finds everything connected to your computer. Look up UBUNTU as that is one distro that was mentioned as being one of the ones to go to if one desires to make the switch to the other side!!And the beat goes on....
QuoteThen to put any apps on the Ipad you have to go through the Apple store, no choice, you can't shell out of the Ipad GUI and just browse the web for apps ( you will be able to in Windows 8 )
