Windows 8 on Andromeda!

The old lady has just won a new lease of life, thanks to an application that corrupted the .NET runtime on my Windows 7 system.

I’m not fond of the new OS. Microsoft has tried too hard to merge disparate concepts into a single platform. As a first attempt, Windows 8 is commendable, but I suspect most Windows users won’t take too kindly to the forced hybridization. Windows 8 is ill suited for a desktop OS. Banishing the Start button didn’t help things either. The forceful fallback to the tablet interface is a serious annoyance.

Yet, I’m happy Andromeda, seemingly on her deathbed, has sprung back into life.
