You missed out NT (huge success) and Windows 2000 (massive success). Unfortuntaely, neither of them fit your pattern.

Windows 2000 was certainly a consumer OS. NT less so.

If you could buy it in Dixons, or Dell supplied it with their home PCs, it was a consumer OS as far as I'm concerned.

Agree with you there, luckily you can opt out. I suppose this is Microsoft bending to pressure, moron users who can't manage anything unless it's all in one place, can't remember more than one password, etc.

It's going to be a LONG time before power users can put all their data on the cloud and manage and work with it at acceptable speeds, but, people who use a computer for the sole purpose of talking rubbish on twitter and facebook may find these features very useful.


Well just to have a peak I did change my windows 8 login from a local account using my hotmail account, I don't use it for anything now anyway.

i found the Apps limited, certainly for email as it only shows the last few emails and I can't find anyway of going to older emails.

I don't really trust the cloud to be honest I know i use lastpast for my passwords, but that is only after a lot of research.
i can't find a app for twitter or facebook unless the people app is for that,

Well, you can run them that way, but it's easier just to use the icons. Pin them to the Start Page if you are going to use them a lot. Just like the Start Menu really. smile


Not really, as you got to go again to the start page to run another bit of software, i know you can add them to the taskbar, but add too many and that starts to be a pain.

In reply to a post by Brunel:
Are Wordpad and Notepad included in this preview?

Or am I wasting my time looking for them?


Press left windows key and R to get the run dialogue up , then type in notepad or wordpad and enter. i thought we gone pas this text entry for commands, may as well go back tot he Amiga.

Err it's easier than that ... on the metro start screen, just type "notepad" and hit enter!


so bang goes the ease of use that metro is suppose to bring.

People need to spend more than a few minutes using Gnome 3. Perhaps then they'll see how many of the ideas have been incorporated into Windows 8.


Don't like Gnome 3 either.

Windows 2000 was never for the home user, I never saw it in dixons, I know Dell had it on some computers, but not many.

windows 98/Me was consumer. Windows Xp was MS way of getting away from DOS and going the NT way for all

What? If you want a notepad icon on the Start screen just put it there.

I must have imagined the copy I bought in Dixons.
