May 21, 2012 #1 win 8 gets rid of aero. ludicrous. here: http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9227318/Microsoft_dumps_Aero_UI_in_Windows_8_Metro_izes_desktop?taxonomyId=125&pageNumber=1 how wretched! it is like windows 2 (the little-used predecessor to windows 3.) windows 2 - 1. looked like crap - like this metro poop 2. only allowed 1 app to be running - like this metro garbage windows 8 will be the biggest boost to mac and linux ever. i suspect that microsoft might even fall on its own sword on this one. too bad ibm was shafted by microsoft in their co-development of os2. we'd have ibm os8 now and it would be slick.
