Windows So, I've been using the Windows 8 Release Preview since it came out, almost exclusively (except for work, since I'm obviously not going to rely on unfinished and untested software for that). I already knew I could get into Metro on my 11.6" ZenBook, but on my 24" desktop, things aren't looking as rosy. Here's an illustrated guide of the most pressing issues I run into, and five suggestions to address them. Instead of just complaining, let's get constructive.

I am keeping it in perspective which is that their image was seriously damaged and there were defections to the mac.

There was also the negative perception that lingered even after Vista had been fixed. It didn't matter, consumers had decided that Vista was bad and Microsoft decided to stop trying to convince them otherwise and release Windows 7.

Why risk the same fiasco? For what? Your attitude of "they'll buy it anyways" says a lot about the product itself. I don't see Windows 8 defenders blogging about how much they love having their icons dumped onto a horizontal screen or having their multi-monitor setup gimped. Defenses typically revolve around "getting used to it" which says everything. When the customer doesn't like the meal you don't say "WELL YOU WILL GET USED TO IT". Good Christ you and Sinofsky don't get business as well as a little girl running a lemonade stand.
