More Windows 8 Countdown Material

Well, here we go again.  Another month counting down to the October release date for Windows 8, and another sampling of "I hate it!" reviews.  How about this one from ZDNet" :

"Oh sure, Windows 8 does boot faster and it has a few new features, but generally speaking Windows 8 with its “not Metro” interface is junk. I've been working with Windows 8 in one version or another for months now and there is simply nothing about it that would make me recommend it over Windows 7 or XP for that matter."

A little later on in the article you begin to find out what the author really thinks:

If you want something better than Windows, go with desktop Linux, a cloud-based Linux desktop like Google's Chrome OS, or a Mac. Heck, try an iPad. Just don't waste your time with Windows 8.

I can't wait for the release of Windows 8, I really am curious if it will be received as badly as reviews seem to be indicating.  Remember Ubuntu and it's Unity bomb.  One size does not fit all.
