Love Jim Carey.
Didn’t get into the older AC games, but this one definitely looks very promising!
After futzing around with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview for a day I’ve come up with some interesting points regarding the navigation and overall feel of the new UI.
Windows 8 centralizes its navigation around the Start menu. When pressing the start key, it pulls up the Metro UI like you’ve all seen on any WP7 device. This is a tad confusing to grasp at first, but I got used to it. I almost wish they would have kept the same side start menu, and just combined that with Metro UI.
First I would like to point out some of the features I enjoyed about the new Windows distribution.
Overall the feel of the OS took a bit of time to get used to. I felt really uncomfortable using the track pad on my laptop - Mainly because of the side screen shortcuts. Even with the mouse sensitivity at the maximum setting, I had to swipe to the left or right 3 to 4 times on the pad in order to get to the shortcut, it was inconvenient. Which leads me to some of the negatives. Now mind you this isn’t the full release, there are a lot more features yet released such as Zune Pass, Facebook, other application integration.
Overall I was very surprised at how much I liked the look and feel of the OS. I half expected to hate it and go back to Windows 7 shortly afterward.
I can’t wait to see the final release and will be running this preview until that time. I eagerly look forward to the supposed Face
bag Book support, so I can read and respond to messages without opening my browser and wasting time. I also hope Google works with Microsoft (Big maybe), and integrates some (or all) of its applications into the new OS.
I would reccommend anyone to check out the preview, and use a mouse while you’re at it. ;)
