Three years ago today, I built the best computer I could at the time to celebrate the best operating system money could buy at the time. That was Windows 7.
Today, we face the launch of Windows 8 and everything that it signals for the future. Even I have built up anger for Windows 8, sources stemming from my desktop usage and the inexperience I discover through my community education work. But that anger will dissipate in time and Windows 8 will grow — Windows 7 was completely baked even in the first beta-stages, Windows 8 will take a little longer to mature.
This time, the problem does not lie in the operating system as much as we would like it to. There is no hardware deficiency to overcome, there are no long standing stability issues to face, there are few application incompatibilities. This time, the operating system, Windows 8, is not the excuse, right now, we are. So, it’s time. Let’s try it.
Welcome, Windows 8.
