    Windows 8 Preview - great stuff.

    I just installed the Windows 8 preview, and while it may seem like something totally different, it still has most of its roots.

    Download your copy here:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/home/

    Definitely boots faster and I like the new User Interface.

    Here is a video:

    Does it require 4 gigs of ram just to sit idle like every other $#@!ing windows OS that has come out in the past 5 years?

    I don't want a touch screen. I want my cell phone to have a touch screen, not my laptop.

    As people on this planet get dumber and dumber, the OS has to follow suit. So the smart people are actually the ones that lose. They have to cater to the majority (retards) and don't really get the benefits of this new technology.

    And I don't want to hear from anyone "well windows 8 has this new feature that windows 7 doesnt have"

    No I dont give a $#@! if windows 8 has integrated facebook automatic profile updater, when I am at work and all we use is windows XP because it is most efficient and stable that says something about your $#@!ing facebook picture updater $#@! app.

    Air Craft, so far as we can tell, involves painting paper airplanes. We don't get it either.

    ^Case and point.
