"I have been a Microsoft defender for decades. ?No, MS-DOS 4.0
isn?t really that bad,? I pleaded to friends almost 25 years ago.
?Give Windows 98 a chance? I begged ten or 11 years later. Heck, I
extolled the virtues of Vista (which I did believe in, by the way)
to anyone willing to listen. But in the wake of last week?s
introduction of the Consumer Preview edition of Windows 8, I can
say only this: Microsoft, you?re on your own.
"Never ? and I?m going to repeat this for additional emphasis,
never ? have I been as horrified by one of the company?s products
as I am by this one. (Yes, I used Microsoft Bob.) Every choice
seems to have been made for a sketchy reason, and the full
collection of them bears the haphazard feel of the morning after a
particularly raucous college party. Scratch that: Even at my most
inebriated, I?m pretty sure I would never conceive of something
like Windows 8."
