Microsoft failed to understand why iOS was so well adopted. This is because Apple didn't take OSX, redesign it for touch and put it on their tablets and force it upon their desktop users. It's always been said that someone who has never used a computer before can pickup an iPad and know how to use it. I doubt the same can be said for Windows 8, mainly because all the menu's are hidden.

It would be the same as if Microsoft would have taken their already well developed Windows Phone 7/8 OS and put it on tablets. They already had the infrastructure in place. They didn't have to reinvent the wheel.

Right on the money, This is an unfortunate case of trying too hard and trying to kill two birds with one stone. Microsoft did well when they didn't seem to care about something but I could sense the desperation on their face trying to push their tablet ecosystem.

Is his opinion bothering you that much?

I want to scream at MS for messing with Windows the way they did.

As far as you are concerned.

The iPad is a big iPhone, Surface Pro is a proper computer, not just a big toy.

It's a joke. People make them all the time about Apple. Why don't you just let it go?

My point is that everyone and their mother makes jokes about Apple. Hell, check any comment on an Apple news post and it goes something like: "HURR DURR, UR HOLDIN IT WRONG! LOL" Suddenly, someone makes a couple jokes about Windows 8 and it's the end of the world...

Dude. Everyone and their mother has been making jokes about Microsoft FOREVER now... way more than people make fun of Apple. It's not "suddenly" that somebody is making a joke about Windows 8... it's an endless hourly barrage of attacks and bad jokes.
