They would have sold a lot more by simply adding an option to use the start button in the control panel, people are naturally scared of change and they're only now seeing the results.

This is 100% true.

People want stability, not radical change.

i mentioned new trackpad gestures+fullscreen support for mountain lion, which are obvious new features very similar to what windows 8 brings. the reason they seem less drastic is because osx has been moving in this direction for a long time, by adding the dock and gradually adding the dock. granted the have not forced a full screen mode in osx instead choosing a compromise with the use of the dock and optional fullscreen. however, i would make almost no difference if they did, to me at least. after all the fastest way to switch programs involves either command+tab, 4 finger swipe up, pressing the "view all open programs" hotkey or 4 finger swiping left or right.

compare the differences between windows 7 and windows 95 and you will probably find that the ui is actually pretty similar. compare the current osx version from the same time period with say osx snow leopard and you will see a massive difference. changes in osx only seem small because they have been gradual

True, but then again, that is reality.

No one, not even Microsoft, is going to change human nature overnight.

People are not afraid of change. MS posted a video about the development of w8, with shots of early renditions dating back to pre iPhone. The whole video, I think is on engadget or elsewhere was basically MS explaining that hey...people are not afraid of change! Look at the world as it is today. People use kindles for reading books, there's smartphones that replaced half the electronics we used to carry....the list goes on.


They actually made a good point, people are not afraid of change so long as it is a change for the better. MS once again has rushed into a decision without actually studying anything and asking the question "why?"

Why was the iPhone so successful?

Why has the kindle replaced books for a lot of people?

Why is touch screen technology so readily accepted and adopted by the general public?


They should've done what apple have done for years, make a decent trackpad, include 'complex' gestures for the trackpad. People keep saying 'just wait...it only launched not too long ago' I for one don't believe that for a second. I just can't see W8 selling well to the public.

It really blows my mind that this is here, I mean throughout the whole development of W8 (years) no one ever questioned if having your arms raised because you need to be able to touch the large screen at different points tires out your arms after a while.

What a shame, maybe I'll look into linux more.

I'm not single minded nor scared of change. Metro just doesn't work for me. Simple as that.

but you dont have to use the touch features, that isnt the only thing new in win8, so many people say this and only concentrate on this, the os itself is much more efficient and in general alot faster so to speak, it also has many features to allow better productivity. i dont use touch screen at all, guess what? it isnt mandatory! i use windows 7 on my htpc still and quite honestly (even tho its still good)find it outdated and slightly lacking after using win8 alot over the past few months. ayways i dont think the touchfeatures were intended for desktop useits just so that microsft tablets and other devices are all on the same level, as alot of houses theses days use alot of different devices on their home netwrok phones, tablets, pc's, media servers. ones os for all the devices would be awesome easier to share info etc
