Windows "I've been writing about Windows for almost 20 years, and I feel like I've kind of seen it all. But for the past several days, I've been struggling under the weight of the most brutal email onslaught I've ever endured over these two decades. And if my email is any indication, and I believe it is, the majority of people out there have absolutely no idea what Windows RT is. This is a problem." When even Paul Thurrot is worried, you can be sure it is, actually, a problem. We're going to see and hear about a lot of frustrated customer who can't load up their 1997 copy of Awesome Garden Designer 2.0 Deluxe.

windows was never confusing like this...



Nonsense, Windows has always been a confusing brand. E.g. At some point Microsoft was offering concurrently Windows vs Windows for Workgroups vs Windows NT workstation vs Windows NT server vs Windows CE.

Microsoft has always sucked at branding, but then again they never had to excel at it since they had a de facto monopoly in the PC. The clear exception to my claim being the Xbox.
