Well, well. The next version of windows is to be shown in three flavours.
So, does this mean the flavours are as follows:
Flavour 1 ) Just about working, but random glitches (read: every flipping day) occur.
Flavour 2) Works only after having installed it three times, and corrupting your hard drive, boot sector and supplying only some of the device drivers required, following by calling IT support for 3/5ths of the day in an time-wasting exercise which only serves to boost Microsoft's coffers.
Flavour 3) Don't bother unpacking the CD, it'll never work in a month of sundays and basically just wait until the next OS to come out.
Call me sceptical, but considering Windows 7 was Vista but in full working order (well near enough), I really don't hold out much hope of a smooth transition from the old OS to a new one.
"Microsoft has called Windows 8 the most significant redesign of the Windows interface since its groundbreaking Windows 95 OS."
Only because users wanted to pound OS into the ground in sheer disbelief.
100,000 Changes!!!!!! - More like a group of programmers in their daily 8 hours group session (I mean meeting) suggests "This idea will work" (Change 1)."A preview version of Windows 8 launched late last year and more than 100,000 changes had been made since the developer version went public".
"Naaa, don't be silly. The feedback drainage from the 3amp seismic residue wouldn't be able to shift the inertia created by floating point calculations" (Change 2).
"Tea anyone?" (Change 3)
"Nope, but coffee if you're offering" (Change 4).
"Jim, Any ideas???"
"Last night's Big Bang Theory was better than the week before" (Change 5)
Group argument ensues (Changes 6 to 39)
And so on and so forth.
Well, thats a 'Start' (excuse the pun). Hopefully next time they'll remove the 'Windows' aspect to it as well.For the first time since its inception, the trademark Windows "Start" button will no longer appear - instead being replaced by a sliding panel-based menu.
Well gentlemen, be careful when (ahem) playing with oneself, as indeed, a stroke it all it takes.
