Some high (or low) points:
  • Surface start screen [is] an incessantly blinking, unruly environment that feels like dozens of carnival barkers yelling at you simultaneously
  • the main UI restricts users to a single window, so the product ought to be renamed "Microsoft Window."
  • On a regular PC, Windows 8 is Mr. Hyde: a monster that terrorizes poor office workers and strangles their productivity.
I just wish he'd just come out and say what he really meant...
cheers,
