Vista fiasco was a perception problem, perception that was created by geeks like you and me. So yes, it is possible that people who hate the new interface are going to ruin a perfectly fine OS, again.

Let me see if I can pick up your logic. Windows 8 is aimed at a minority demographic because it is aimed at tablets? Except that isnt really correct. Windows 8, if you used it, you would know is a hybrid OS just like the Hybrid machines it is inspiring. It is an OS built to fit 2 modes, Desktop and Mobile. In Desktop mode, which is what most people think of when they think of computers works just like windows 7 except the start menu is replaced with a Start screen. Users will need to understand the difference between legacy applications which is to say the desktop applications you use now and Windows RT apps, which arent as necessary in this mode. The start screen makes these tiles quite obvious, so not so hard to figure out. Mobile mode is just as it sound, when you are on the go away from the desk. In this mode, you are not worried about all around productivity and multitasking. Instead, you want to check your mail quickly or search the internet. Pretty much the same kind of think you would use an iPad for. In this mode, the Windows RT apps make a lot of sense. Now you will ask, why is Mobile mode necessary on a desktop computer? And the answer is, it isnt, but it isnt hurting anything either. Since it isnt hurting anything, why not have a consistent experience on what ever platform you go to? If you keep these things in mind and give the OS a real try, you will find that once you get past the initial learning curve, it is so much faster than anything before it. This is really a more productive OS than anything that came before it. Windows 8 hate just doesnt stand up to reality.

Oh this is just freakin' priceless. So, let me see if I get this right. When 8 flops, it won't be ms's fault, it'll be our fault...???

I've moved fully to Windows 8 on desktops and laptops. No primary Windows 7 anymore on any of my physical machines.

I moved fully to Windows Server 2012 (except for the Mac of course, which is running Mountain Lion) all three of my Dell PC's are running Windows Server 2012! Just FYI.

Survey says: "Windows 8 users prefer Windows 8 over other OSes."
Their survey is faulty. Period."

Windows 8 hasn't been released to the public yet so this survey is useless.
Also, please stick to the topic.
