Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

Its not just that Thom the whole Metro UI is completely inconsistent with the rest of the OS, things will be in one area of the desktop and a different area in metro for no good reason, you have a completely new UI but little to nothing telling you what this or that actually DOES and trying to use search to get the answer is pointless since you have to know what the MSFT terminology is for what you are doing which if you know that you'll know where to find it.

Check out the little animated video i linked to earlier, he lays out all the problems better than I ever could, I would merely add I had no trouble picking up Android, iOS, Linux, etc but Win 8 with its lack of context or explanation made me give up in frustration, yes its THAT bad.
