“Windows 8 feel[s] like two separate operating systems poorly grafted together. You can never avoid the join entirely, but your happiness with Windows 8 will depend heavily on just how often you have to cross over. The more you try to treat the two worlds as equal, integrated peers, the worse Windows 8 gets. The more you stick to one paradigm or the other, the better it is.”
» I don’t remember the OS 9 -> OS X transition that well these days, but I know that such a hard separation didn’t exist. Sounds like Windows 8 is going to be a pain for the non-tech savvy.
