I have set eyes on and had a play with Windows 8 and have never ever seen
anything so badly designed. It really is the most awful system to be
productive on. It is set up to be able to go directly to Facebook or
Twitter etc, but if that doesn't work because of a network problem with the
computer, don't ask me where the settings are, because I couldn't find them!

You like Xfce, I prefer Unity - that's fine - the power of Free Open Source

We will all be able to let off Steam on Ubuntu soon, thanks to Valve not
being able to work with locked down Windows 8.
