Windows 8 release on 26th October but I dont care about this OS which is looking like a Phone App.
Alt and Tab found out that Microsoft wants to release Windows 8 on 26th October. I never was so much uninteressted in a new and upcoming Windows Release. Tastes differ. Tastes and Feelings are subjective. But if you ask me, I defenetly will sticking with Windows 7. The whole new Desktop Design of Windows 8 is in my subjective Opinion pretty ugly.
You can say I am not a big fan of this new Trend “Everything has to look like a Mobile Phone App”. Indeed I am also not a big fan of Changes. But what pissing me most off from Windows 8 is the Fact that Microsoft is so conceited as they think “People will love it!” and theirfore didn´t even add the posibility of letting People choose if they want to activate the classical Windows Look and Feel. All what I did hear is that it will not be possible anymore to setup your Windows 8 Desktop to a classical Look. What I know so far is that they will force us to use the new Design. But not with me. I stick with Windows 7. If this new Windows 8 Design is the Future of every upcoming Windows Release in the Future, then they will lose one Customer until they change their Design Direction. I never felt so much careless about a Microsoft Product like today. I could even imagine to switch to any Linux OS if this is the Future Design of every upcoming Microsoft OS.
I dont see Usability coming to us with the new Design. It looks rather like a pedestrian Mobile App but not like an Operating System. Again I can say that feelings are subjective but my feeling is that Windows 8 looks extremely childish. This is the Answer I would give, if someone would ask me about Windows 8.
