"unless Windows 8 is a spectacular flop which is unlikely given the apparent good start."
I disagree for example wikipedia states the result is mixed NOT good.
Maybe you should go and edit the wikipedia page lol
Your reply seems fair but i have 2 thoughts.
You never addressed your motivations.. why is this such a battle for you ?
Why are people not allowed to dislike things on Windows 8 ?
Also for the most part i heard you stating your opinions and i won't dare say they are wrong
but lets keep things in context.. I have an opinion too.. so what lol
What makes your right and mine wrong ? What you typed out didn't make a compelling argument for me personally
For others ya maybe ?? And Windows is not designed for a subset of the public tradionaly
and having M$ slash and burn all their products and services and merge them into one so called "unified"
platform means more than ever they should be trying to please a wider audience.
And you gave me your opinionon M$'s direction and here iis mine in response.
M$ shouldn't be killing good practices because some people are bored with windows.
That sounds an awful lot like change for changes sake to me.
Don't forget you can always go and install software after installing windows..
We don't need to get carried away with bundling things into the OS..
Not when they are doing stuff liek removing WMC lol
You should read the quote posted at wikipedia from this guy..
Adrian Kingsley-Hughes from ZDNet wrote: "The biggest problem with Windows 8 is that it wasn't born out of a need or demand. Its design failures, particularly with ‘Metro UI’ will likely be its downfall."
I don't see the problem here if M$ can please everyone. What is wrong with adding some options to an OS
that will please both sides ? of Say the Metro interface for example. If both sides get what they want then why is only one side complaining ?
