Windows "Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8. Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store." I'm still not clear on what '12:01 AM local time' means, but if it means it goes on sale in every country on 12:01 AM, I'll be buying in a bit over an hour!

Microsoft decided to fix what isn't broken by introducing Metro.

Other fixing of unbroken things throughout history:

Mr Ugg Caveman fixed the unbroken process of walking with the wheel.

I guess the lesson we're trying to teach is never to try different things we never tried before unless we know that it works because no one likes exploration and discovery.

The only people in the world that are divinely allowed to fix what isn't broken are people dressed in faggy black turtlenecks with anger issues.
