the saddest true thing i read all day... they changed an icon, into the most generic thing they possible could.
It's so fucking.... ugly.
Still performance-wise Windows 8 is great but god, it looks so bad on a PC. Yeah, it's great for tablets but for PC you definitely need to disable the Metro UI and use it with an improved Windows 7 interface. ( 10sec registry work)
Popular forms of torture in days of yore include thumbscrews, bamboo under the fingernails and Windows Millenium. Just displaying the Windows Me icon on your computer can cause random lockups and process slowdowns. Be thankful they didn't include it in their timeline.
I actually enjoyed the Preview when I had it on my machine. It was fast and if you get use to the tiles and how to switch between the desktop and the tiles you navigate through stuff really quickly. It actually seemed to speed up my interaction with the PC. Took a second to get used to it though.
