Info about Windows 8 has been trickling in piece by piece and we’ve been learning about all kinds of drastic design changes, like the lack of plug-in support for Metro, the new blue screen of death and now, the unthinkable; Windows 8 is replacing their decades-old BIOS boot sequence. You know, that good old grey-text-on-black-background, press-f12-for-boot-menu screen. It’s gone. Forever. Replaced by some new-agey “Graphical User Interface” thing that all the kids are used to. It’s a crying shame.
