Windows Now that Windows 8 has gone gold, Microsoft can move on to other things. With Windows 8, the most important of these is probably to make sure people know how to actually use it. Metro is filled to the brim with hard-to-discover features, but Microsoft has a plan. Will it be enough?

I think a lot of the grumbling around Windows 8 is because we've been getting half of the story. This fall the hardware will rise to match the software.

All in ones will be touch enabled, mice will be touch sensitive and laptop track pads will be optimized for Windows 8.


This is THE DUMBEST BUSINESS PLAN I HAVE SEEN IN YEARS.

Microsoft makes billions from selling upgrades to an established product and they have designed a UI around hardware that 99% of their install base doesn't own. Even worse is that they are pissing off their install base by artificially forcing a UI that the majority doesn't want.

I'm gonna go start a vegan restaurant in a part of Texas that is 99% meat eating. If anyone grumbles it's only because they want to eat meat. You want to buy stock in this company?

Goodbye Sinofsky, Goodbye Ballmer. Good riddance you two jackasses
