Atwood optimistic about Windows 8

Jeff Atwood raves about Windows 8 on his (awesome) blog, Coding Horror.

One rather surprising observation is that Windows 8 appears to start, shut down and generally run faster than Windows 7. Equally surprising is that the hardware requirements for Windows 8 are actually lower than for Windows 7.

I remain unconvinced, although to be fair I haven’t yet used it. The new Metro user interface alone is going to make Windows 8 a tough sell for me.

Windows 8 will be on store shelves in late October.
