Must say that this was an excellent article.. and though some people may say that obviously, the Linux Magazine will put Linux as the winner, I found it to hit the nail on the head.
Ok I'll admit that I first used Linux with Suse version 5 and fell in love with it.. started using linux fully with Mandrake version 8.
BUT i have also been using MS Os'es from DOS 3.3 for Work (I'm an IT Manager)
I have also been an MS Beta tester since Windows 98.. I can honestly say Windows 8 is the biggest bag of crap they have produced.. Yes I beta tested it, Hey a even bought a copy to install on one of my Laptops ( and have tried to use it properly to give it a fair go) The laptop previously ran windows 7 fantastically along with the usual Office apps, Visual studio, Eve Online and World of Warcraft.
With Win 8 installed to run EvE and Wow acceptably I had to really turn down the graphic to bare minimum, but still it wouldn't run correctly.. and everything that the article mentions about the apps and really needing 2 version of everything one for the metro interface and one for the desktop to get a suitable experience.
I actually unstalled it on Saturday and put Ubuntu 12.10 on the same laptop install Eve and WoW under wine and oh my god what a difference.. I'm even enjoying Unity now.. after Win 8 Unity makes sense (please don't hit me..
So well done guys.. Wish you had done this last month and saved me the extra month of pain..
Don't Dream it....Be it..
