installed windows 8 on parallels on mac. AAARRRGGG!
You know the design is unintuitive - i had to search on google for the power off button. Really? How often are you going to turn off your machine - often i assume. IE opens in full screen mode - and it continued to - until in frustration i installed chrome. Then it runs in the windowed legacy mode. The full screen mode doesn't work on the mac because when you pull your mouse down, it pops up the mac dock. I am already using active corners for other purposes on parallels - so that screwed with my experience as well. The whole legacy and windows app schizophrenia is really irritating. You never know what to expect from an app. its not seamless as they want it to be. I think this is a benign Vista from Microsoft. They are going to be disappointed by sales. With that much change, it is that much easier to switch to a droid or mac tablet. Its easier to switch from a windows 7/ vista to iPad than to switch to windows 8. I don't think they understand user interface design or plain design at any level. They also will lose the stranglehold on business - the future is more web based than ever.
