Windows 8, and people moaned about Unity

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Help set my father in law up with his new laptop. It came with Windows 8. First time I have used it. Trying to get your head around not having a start menu and working with those tiles is just plain weird. I just really can't see what the point of those tiles are. For having all your information in one place, great but for productivity it's awful in my opinion. Your constantly flicking between the two interfaces. May be I should have played with it longer???? I think Unity beats Windows 8. Unity felt like a fresh experience. Windows 8 just feels like Windows 7 with some sideshow added to it. (Hardware)
