Windows "A senior Samsung Electronics executive said Friday the launch of Windows 8 has failed to bolster demand for PCs and he does not expect the PC industry to rebound soon." Of course, Samsung and other OEMs could've, you know, built better computers. Just a suggestion.

Windows 8 is a true paradigm change in that the way computers are sold is changing, the experiences people expect, the hardware people want. The market is different.

Changing the way computers are sold, the experiences people expect and the hardware people want has nothing to do with the OS. You only need an OS that gives you the freedom to make it into what you want(android/linux) and OEMs go nuts with innovation. Give them a stale platform with useless features forced upon you and they'll just yawn.
What people want: 1. no maintenance 2. freedom to make it do what you want 3. provide choices on low, medium and high prices
