I doubt the validity of the points raised in the OP, but like all empires MS will eventually crumble one day.

A month and a half after Windows 8 is on the market, and people are clobbering each other to call it a failure. Wow.


No,
Most people were doing that even before the release of Windows 8! I just had my first real chance to play/work on a Windows 8 laptop yesterday. My goodness, what an awful cluster f**k!! I now know for absolute certainty I WILL NOT ever upgrade my Windows 7 machines to that mess!! In fact, I'd go back to XP before Windows 8!! :x

I prefer to wait until Microsoft issues their Q4 statements. We should know more then.

Wow, way to go giving us an actual explanation as to why Windows 8 is problematic - but then again given that you're 64 years old (assuming 1958 is your date of birth because why the hell else would you put it on the end of your nick name?) I guess change is difficult thing to digest.

Ageist much? Wow, kiddo, did yer math wrong too... A person born in 1958 would be 54, not 64. Stay in school, alright?

Wow, I make a small mistake and you ignore the point of the post.

Way to go replying to my post when it was directed at cork1958 - are you cork1958? if not then shut up and don't reply to posts that aren't directed at you.

Even if it were true that Microsoft had no answers to this threats it would still be wrong to call apple the threat. Apple is already on it's way down, Microsoft should be afraid of google.

Yesterday it was Apple going down the drain, today it's Microsoft's turn. Funny how even the tech articles follow the 2012 doom trend. Very refreshing.

Microsoft missed the boat on something with Windows RT / Phone 7x-8x.
If they would of implemented Group/Enterprise Management on these devices they could of been the first to do it and made them very attractive to business.

To the OP: SERIOUSLY?

MS will fall when Apple falls - how about that? Which means that it won't happen any time soon.

Is this a joke? Sorry, not buying any of that bull****. I take issue with every single one. MS has problems, but not those.

#2 for example, "As more people get comfortable with Apple's mobile products at work, Microsoft will have to worry about them converting their Windows-based computers to Macs at work, too."

:laugh: Spoken like a true Apple dork.


its hum. why would you take anything he says serious? Apple kids are still mad that there are still more vista (windows supposed failure) users then mac and Linux combined.
