A tribute to Windows 8: If it hadn't been so bad, Windows 10 wouldn't be so good

I didn’t know what to do.

In November 2012, I flew to Dubai to cover the overseas launch of Windows 8. I was a freelancer then, relatively new on the beat, and a handful of reporters mingled among sheikhs and other Middle-Eastern bigwigs in the bowels of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. A freelance reporter that I had just met asked me to give him a tour of Windows 8.

”Windows 8 isn’t for everyone. If you’re mostly a desktop PC user comfortable with Windows 7, upgrading to Windows 8 is probably not worthwhile.”—Loyd Case, from PCWorld’s review of Windows 8

I was new to the whole swiping concept, but knew enough to tap on a tile to launch an app. But whoever had set up the laptops hasn’t connected them to any Wi-Fi, so there was little to see. And for a few moments I forgot what “Desktop” referred to, even as I tried to find the shortcut that took you to the “Windows screen.”
