So John Dvorak is out with a scathing Windows 8 review. Says it may be worse than Vista. Some highlights: Article. I hasten to add this mirrors Tim Cook's criticism, namely, you can't have an operating system be all things to all devices -- you need a specialized platform for phone, tablet, and personal computer. So is he right about this? Frankly I was hoping Windows 8 would be good. With the Mac Pro desktop line in doubt, I was hoping to use an iMac for most of my office-related work and productivity, and then a custom-built PC for some heavy lifting (compiling, videos, games). PC hardware right now is very good, especially when viewed from a price-performance perspective. But if Windows 8 is a disaster, I don't know, I may have to rethink the entire hardware issue and hope Apple does a much better job with true pro desktops/workstations and aftermarket support for them.
