Microsoft are launching Windows 8 on October 26th this year. Steve Sinofsky, the Windows OS chief unveiled the date at the Microsoft annual sales meeting. To add weight, Microsoft updated a blog post with the information.
Having tried the operating system I do remain completely unimpressed, particularly with the Metro interface, which while ideal for a tablet, is far from perfect for my desktop computer. When I switched back to Windows 7 it felt like such a positive move again.
Have you tried Windows 8 yet? Are you happy with the new interface? Do you feel it offers a huge step up from Windows 7? Let us know.
I can’t help but feel that this is a step back for Microsoft, as they are putting all their efforts into taking on Apple in the mobile space rather than focusing on their long standing enthusiast desktop user base.
