The Verge’s review of Windows 8 (8.8/10)

A review of Windows 8 over at The Verge gives it a score of 8.8 out of 10. While short of gushing, the review has mostly good things to say about the new O/S, suggesting that either it really is that good, or the reviewer(s) swallowed every last drop of that Microsoft Kool-Aid.

About jrivett

Jeff Rivett has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s. His first computer was an Apple II+, built by his father and heavily customized. Jeff's writing appeared in Computist Magazine in the 1980s, and he created and sold a game utility (Ultimaker 2, reviewed in the December 1983 Washington Apple Pi Journal) to international markets during the same period. Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
