Microsoft "Although Bill Gates stepped away from his day-to-day role at Microsoft nearly five years ago, he still keeps a close eye on the company he co-founded - and he isn't always happy with what he sees. During a recent interview broadcast this morning on CBS This Morning, the Microsoft chairman was asked by Charlie Rose whether he was happy with Steve Ballmer's performance as chief executive. Noting that there have been 'many amazing things' accomplished under Ballmer's leadership in the past couple of years, Gates said he was not satisfied with the company's innovations." It's impossible to deny by this point that Microsoft hasn't done well in mobile. It would be more surprising if Gates had denied it.

They essentially do this every other Windows OS release anyways. If I didn't know any better I'd say it was intentional. One OS release that is experimental/groundbreaking/severely flawed, followed by one OS release that refines on the strengths and irons out the wrinkles. Wash, rinse and repeat.

Windows 8 = ME, 2000 Professional, Vista
Windows 9 = 98, XP, Windows 7
