Mel Martin, long time Apple fan, sharing his first impressions on his Windows 8 new PC:
There are already plenty of public doubts about the viability of Windows 8, and giving new users a steaming pile instead of a reliable update to fix some unexplained issue is horrific. As I sat there staring at a frozen screen with no solution in sight without having an extra computer -- my Mac -- available to search for an answer, I remembered that Apple had never, ever dealt me these kinds of cards. Yes, I’ve had to re-boot from a few updates, but nothing like this. It would be one thing if it was just me and my Windows 8 laptop had some special configuration, but lots of people were burned with the same issue with brand new hardware.
Microsoft -- it just “doesn’t work”, and more and better testing is needed.
