I avoided Windows 2012 due to the same crap moves as Windows 8, but I’ll be damned as there are some 2012 servers in house now.
Seriously. Using a server without a start menu and needing to do the top right corner thing for tiles, is a complete pain in the (counter-intuitive) ass. On top of the basic failures there, Exchange 2013 is pretty much a hot piece of shit.
Exchange 2013 is like ‘Admin interface? Oh you mean login to a webpage for a sudo-office 365 experience’. Needless to say, I’m not a fan. I support change when it makes sense, but when you are making shit harder to navigate for the sake of a new release, fuck you.
That’s my love letter to Microsoft on the 2012 – 2013 releases. Stop smoking meth and making shittier programs. It’s not cool.
