[Ask dotTechies] Do you plan on upgrading to Windows 8? Do you like the new Metro UI?March 15, 2012 18 Email article | Print article
Windows 8 is around the corner, with Windows 8 Consumer Preview already hitting the streets. Windows 8 isn’t just a new Windows. It is a radically different Windows which attempts to bridge the gap between traditional and mobile computer; a “post PC” world, if you will. As such, Windows 8 has polarizing features such as a new Metro UI and lack of the Start Menu.
Personally speaking, I’m excited for Windows 8 on tablets (in my opinion Windows 8 tablets will be king) but I’d very much prefer the traditional Windows UI, such as what is found in Windows 7, over Metro UI on my PC; and I’m going to terribly miss the search box in the Start Menu.
