Windows 8 is already universally hated, and it hasn't even been released yet [View all]

I recently got a digital copy of a PC magazine, and it had an editorial talking about the forthcoming Windows 8 and what peoples reactions have been. Here is a little slice of it -

"I've lived through Windows Millennium edition and Windows Vista - two of the most despised Microsoft operating systems in history.

ME was infamous for its instability, crashing, and suckage, while Vista stunk up the joint like a pot of old broccoli water left on the stove overnight. As much as people didn't like ME and Vista, the bile over Windows 8 has reached a pitch unlike any I recall from those earlier lemons.

People don't just dislike Windows 8, they truly seem to despise it, and it's not even out. We did an informal, unscientific poll asking our magazines Face-bookians if they planned to upgrade to Windows 8. The result was an overwhelming NO!

People are so amped up to bash on Microsoft that even the company's new logo to sync with the new Windows 8 "Metro" look was batted around like a whiffle ball by just about everyone. While it's always fashionable in tech to bash Microsoft, the vitriol was way over the top with some suggesting that the earlier logos had attitude and swagger and suggested something akin to "world domination", while the new one is nothing but a bland, boring fail."


LOL, way to go microsoft, I'm sensing an EPIC FAIL coming when this POS is released. Anyone who has seen the kindergarten big and blocky toy like interface probably isn't surprised by all the hatred.
