Windows 8.1 Interface Preview

June 26th, 2013 - 6:41 am

Ars Technica has one for you. Mostly what I notice is that they’ve managed to make the interface slightly uglier, by tacking on new visual clues for functions that MS hid in Windows 8 in a mistaken effort to make their mouse-and-cursor desktop OS touch-friendly.

And if you think that last sentence was a mess, you should take a look at the new Windows. I ain’t got nothin’ on that mess.

I'm running Linux Mint right now but my machine is on its last left......An Apple iMax is starting to look good. They have some refurbs at a decent price...and the reports are that it screams with Linux Mint 14 as a dual boot......sigh.

I bought Windows 8. As in, I intentionally purchased an upgrade for my old custom XP machine. I had my reasons. I can best describe those reasons by saying I was horny, lonely, it was last call, and even Windows looks good after a few drinks.

That said, seeing WIndows 8.1 one makes me feel better about purchasing WIndows 8 when I did. If you're going to make the mistake, make it while you can still blame it on the alcohol... there's not enough in the world to justify a WIndows 8.1 purchase.

Maybe I'll buy a Trashcan Pro later this year if for no other reason to admire Apple's ability to put a square peg in a round hole.

I think their subtle commentary on it is in images 8 & 9. :)

I hate Windows 8. I think I would hate 8.1 even more.

My Windoze machine came with 8 installed. I'm glad I upgraded to 7.
