Windows Paul Allen, one of Microsoft's co-founders who left the company long ago, has posted on his blog about his experiences with Windows 8. He (surprise) likes it, but he does note a number of shortcomings and oddities - all of which are spot-on. However, he fails to address the core issue with Windows 8: it's forcing users to drill a small hole in the wall with a belt sander.

Personally, I applaud more choice. However, the general consumer does not. The general consumer wants all the choices made for them. As an example, look at Apple. They are immensely popular for the general public because everything is so "dumbed" down and all the decisions are made for them.

The passing of legislation to give the consumer more choice sounds like a great idea on paper, however I don't see it impacting much as the general consumer will just choose Windows.
