The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Windows 8 Is A Piece Of Crap

Posted on Thursday, August 23 @ 07:07:07 PST by sara_gunn


I'm a fan of old things that work. I loved Windows XP, even though it looked like a Fisher-Price nightmare. It did what it was supposed to do and wasn't intimidating to regular folks in the way old Windows had been.

Then we had Vista, which I'm going to pretend didn't exist. Windows 7, which I'm currently rockin', is awesome, and it still feels like I'm using a PC. In fact, I wish it could stick around forever.

Apparently someone has angered the Great and Mighty Gates, though, because it's not. Soon we'll have Windows 8 and, if you're a fan of fun in any context, you're going to despise it. I mean, look at it. Just ... uhg. It's like a bastardized version of the Xbox Live Dashboard, except uglier. It's like a fifth grader's construction-paper art project. My mama could embroider a pillow case with better design, and she has wicked carpal tunnel.

If the design wasn't bad enough, there's a mountain of other things that will bring you to tears. Love your PSN profile? Sorry, that jive doesn't fly around here: Your Windows profile is essentially your Xbox Live profile with a couple more things tacked on. Want to game offline? I guess you can, but Windows is going to constantly hassle you to connect so they can bombard you with ads. (Pretty much everything you hate about Live will constantly be in your face on your computer.)

Your other gaming services, like Origin and Steam, won't integrate with Windows 8, either, unless you switch to the old format. You know, like what you have now. *Sigh* ...
