Really don't see the comparison with Win95 unless in broad strokes you are talking about the total shift (win3.x to win95 and win7 to win8).
I've played with win8, have RTM loaded on one of my computers and now toying with switching it back to win7.
Really don't like win8 and I don't think a lot of enterprises will like it either.

i liked the Zune
if it weren't for the lack of marketing and developers making apps, the Zune probably could have easily crushed the iPod classic/touch

I can kind of see why it's compared to Windows 95. Both were big changes to the UI.

The only people who are cowards here are the one's not giving it a fair chance.


Really? Wow! Then what do you call the people who use the logo of a company's product as their avatar, and rush to defend said product at every turn?

How soon we forget. 8 is nothing like 95. Not even close.

all i say is this !!

windows 8 vs windows 7

8 is way faster than 7
7 has a start menu 8 doesn't
8 has a desktop or metro i don't use metro because i use the desktop 90%of the time
<snipped>
8 looks like the 360 which 10000 own so for us no big change
last if u hate 8 stay with 7 and please stop all the hating posts about 8 please all the fn time theres like thousands

I gave it a chance in the preview and RTM and it just plain sucks. Just because something is new does not make it better. I do not have a Tablet ,touchscreen and as stated I have no use for it. Windows 7 has never failed me and it does not look like a POS!

Yeah. You know something is wrong in the PC world when the "best apps" lists for Windows 8 include Angry Birds. According to the new Microsoft policy, this is the future. According to my guts, this is how they can go **** themselves.....

@OP, well said. I agree with you but that's what the dodo bird brains at Microsoft don't understand. We're stuck with this "simplified" crap and it's going to get worse. Whatever MS touches will be "simplified". Next they will try to improve Explorer and "simplify" it in Windows 9 to a dumbed down Metro app that strips all functions. You cannot trust MS anymore. They will sell you reduced functionality products as a replacement.

But, but, but, but, but you can be just as productive in Metro as on the desktop!

I don't see Angry Birds on here at all... Just saying. If you're that ****ed off, why not go out and develop a killer app?
