Window 8 is pathetic because the time you save in reboot is wasted in many folds for searching and opening programs. I am running it in an Ultrabook that I recently won.
I work with it occasionally, and straight to desktop mode. Know what? I made some small bat files for opening important things and put it in a folder.
However I am still in love with my 15" Sony VAIO with Windows 7, for it's display and contrast is better. I can quickly run programs and do stuff that I do.
I shifted to Windows purely due to visual studio and Ms-Access and then .Net.
But now Microsoft seems all set to promoting Javascipt and HTML5 . When you produce something like Silverlight and Wpf, you just dont ditch them! All these Metro style Apps and all? Get real! Our Car service center software has 300 forms and 80 tables. To replicate the same functionality in Metro or HTML5, one would have to be really rich as he would have to spend years trying to do it.
If MS stops promoting the software that we have loved so much and force the issues, I am out of it. I am not going to use javascipt just because Ms wants me to.
I never thought that Js would be part of VS honestly. The shock and insecurity is making me to look for different things.
