Microsoft Still in Denial
..." indeed. Instead of fixing, they are playing the blame game. Countless of knowledgeable people (Windows experts and developers, not the usual anti-MS brigade) hammered them in the past twelve months about the very obvious issues with Windows 8, yet Redmond acted as if the whole town went through a self-hypnosis course. "La la, can't hear you!".
If the shock over the Windows 8 sales is indeed real and unexpected at MS HQ, then I am truly shocked." - wastingtimewithforums
..." It's a floor wax. No, it's a dessert topping. Microsoft's new whatever-the-F-it-is operating system is a confusing, Frankenstein's monster mix of old and new that hides a great desktop upgrade under a crazy Metro front-end. It's touch-first, as Microsoft says, but really it's touch whether you want it or not (or have it or not), and the firm's inability to give its own customers the choice to pick which UI they want is what really makes Windows 8 confounding to users.

Seems to me like Thurrott is talking a bit of sense for once . Well maybe that's a bit harsh but I find his opinion in that article pretty much hits it on the head for me. So many of the problems with win8 are obvious. Yes I have it installed, well as dual boot and I can tell you I am on Windows 7 right now
It became too irritating, NOT trying to find how to do things but actually having to do them the win 8 way! I've had it installed since the first Releases and I just cannot like it. I've been using PC's, windows mostly for decades and this is the strangest OS I've seen from MS.
I don't think people will get used to this one and slowly accept it, then maybe go on to praise it. I can't see it as there are obvious problems with it, it isn't even like a Desktop PC OS.
Hehe OK I think I was too late to that party.
I already went over this post at another point in the thread with someone else. Read that post and you will understand my point.
