Last week Microsoft introduced Windows 8 to the public via a developer preview build . Featuring the new Metro UI, Windows 8 definitely embraces touch technology. Despite the generally glowing reviews available all over the internet (especially for a pre-beta build), people want more.

Very modern and sleek, the interface provides the user with all their important apps, photos, and more within a simple swipe or tap of the finger. Not a fan of the billboard-style flood of information? Windows 8 is fully customizable to mimic the more static Windows 7 design.Details

Is it true, or another fantasy like a network printer working upon plugging in the CAT-5 cable?Details
Everybody loves the freedom of creative self-expression, and what could possibly be a better way to say “I am an individual” than with a completely pimped-out desktop wallpaper? I suppose facial tattoos might do the trick, but something tells me that the general populace favors a less permanent proclamation of individuality.Details

There is some truly amazing software out there. Revolutionary products that have changed the way we live, interact and do business. However, there are also some real stinkers. Programs which are long past due, riddled with security issues and malware, software that holds innovation back, and, in short, are just plain bad.
Here is a subjective list of the twenty worst. Settle down Microsoft-haters, Bill Gates’ creations only appear 5 times on this list. Even the usually squeaky-clean Apple gets a few drubbings too.Details
