I am sorry, how is that acting like I am two years old? I am NOT the one that said "Deal with it", maybe you should tell him to stop acting like he is two. Geez.
If everybody in the business environment wants the Start Menu back, MS would be smart to put it back. Did I once say MS should have checked with me before releasing Windows 8?
No, but you just did now. ("Does Microsoft have complete 100% immunity to do whatever they want without consequence?") suggesting that Microsoft developers work for us, when in fact they do not. They have plans on where to carry the OS forward. And despite the bitter few who will kick and scream, they'll do that regardless. Microsoft unifying their services has already spawned a competitor: Canonical, who is unifying their devices with Unity. Even Apple laughs now, but I bet you they're looking into this as well.
But MS is not 100% immune to consequences. So if the majority of the userbase wants the start menu back, and they star losing MASSIVE sales, MS BETTER put the menu back. They ARE NOT IMMUNE to consequence.
Completely irrational thinking. The majority of their userbase just switched over to Windows 7. Not many are going to make the hop again so quickly, especially businesses. They'll wait for Windows 9 or their next hardware refresh before upgrading, same with consumers who will upgrade when they purchase a new machine or tablet.
Also, quit yelling.
MS IS NOT IMMUNE to consequence. So telling us to "Deal with it" is rather irritating.
What kind of attitude does that bring us? Sim City? "Deal with it".
If we do not speak up, nothing will happen. WE DO HAVE A VOICE you know as comsumers.
This is where you appear to be two. Again, quit yelling. This nonsensical rambling doesn't help your cause. The consequences of changing course, and removing the Start Menu are not as catastrophic as you make them out to be, as users will adapt as they have before in the past.
A company is not immune to failures. Yes they can do what they want, but as consumers if it does not work, they will NEED to revert their changes.
No, they will adapt and move on, not revert. Again, the changes coming in Windows 8 Blue are a clear indication of that. Users wanted XYZ features in the Start Screen, Microsoft listened to them, and now users are getting the features they wanted. Windows 9 will then build off of the changes in Windows 8 Blue, and so forth. Just as it's always been.
The Start Screen is more than just a screen of tiles, it's its own operating environment, complete with a store and a better codebase for development.
