yeah, maybe I could see the light someday...when I become a user instead of an su.
I know for a fact that Windows 8 is far superior to both of the former operating systems. My statement comes from the fact that every person I encounter will not take the leap to use Win8 due to the fact that Metro is your default loadout.
I won't just give into change for the sake of change. They removed the start menu since they claimed no one used it...with the way I work that is far from the truth.
I especially hated the fact that turning off my PC became a 4 step process.
To get to the power button in the new OS, you must pull out the Charms menu, click the Settings charm, click the Power button and then select Shutdown or Restart.
When launching stuff from the charms menu it is no longer in a window...It runs an app that takes over the entire screen. I find this highly counter productive to troubleshooting. IMO it is no longer windows at this point...since there is no window -_- ya digg?
Re-Rail: Honestly, if Microsoft needs a reason for bad sales. They should look at not releasing a new OS when clearly one was not needed. Try to not strap on hardware as a selling point when we really don't need that right now either. They are not apple so they just can't take that kind of approach.
