i'm just disappointed and frustrated with windows/microsoft. microsoft is like the govt. it's too big and out of touch with the people. i remember numbers came out that windows 8 did worse than vista. then 2 weeks later microsoft made up numbers of how it's actually doing better than windows 7. then a few weeks later which is now they're going to release windows 8.1 because they listened to the users... smh.
intel and microsoft are out of touch with us and other companies need to step up to either wake them up or take their place.
Which Intel, you mean the Intel currently working their backsides off to meet the rising importance of long range portability in mobile devices in the phone, tablet and laptop space? And are already looking set to really take it to the other chip manufacturers who were overshadowing them in the aforementioned areas?
The intel who with their clovertrail/baytrail and future chips have made arm based solutions to super mobile Windows 8 devices seem irrelevant?
I think you'll find that it is you who is out of touch with what is actually happening in the markets.
And yes, they are listening to the users of Windows 8 to make the experience better via 8.1. That doesn't mean they're going to listen to the people who essentially want the new OS to be Windows 7 with a service pack.
As if that would somehow stop the tablet market and non Windows mobile computing environments eating into the overall computing market in which desktops/laptops used to be the only competitors just a few years ago. As if that would remove the fact that soon after Windows 7 launched, many devices that eliminated the need for a computer to do computer related tasks become super popular. Something that wasn't even a factor to consider even during the "Vista years".
They're putting resources into improving Windows 8 for Windows 8 users in order to develop and refine the experience (aka what any software developer does), not wasting money turning Windows 8 into Windows 7 for people who could simply install WIndows 7 if they want it, which is a smarter move imo.Edited by GrizzleBoy - 5/31/13 at 2:18pm
