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?

First of all Microsoft has billions in safe profits for years. Very few companies have that type of security. Sure the stock has been flat but when it comes to company health (IE paying the bills) they are fine.

They don't need a hail mary pass and even if they did it they could do it without angering their existing customer base. Why force Metro on enterprise? Why force Metro on Server?

This plan is so incredibly stupid and I expect business analysts to use it as a future case of what not to do. Microsoft has over 50 billion in the bank, they can buy marketshare/take huge risks without angering existing customers.
