Windows: 8 Users: 0
The worldwide rollout of Windows 8 has just happened, and I can't stop thinking of an impolite word that begins with cluster—.
Like a lot of you nerds out there, I've been using Windows 8 on a spare PC for a little while now, and I must say… it's going to fail, big time. It's too different, too incompatible, and too confusing for the average PC user to want to have anything to do with it. With all the inevitability of Greek tragedy, we'll watch the final spasmodic, reflexive twitching of the post-PC era. Take pictures, everyone. You'll want to tell your grandkids about this.
Albert Einstein reportedly said, "You can't solve problems with the same minds that created them." My uncle also said, "You can't put lipstick on a pig." I find both of those comments oddly relevant here.
