Windows You can say what you will about Windows Phone and Windows 8's Metro interface (I refuse to drop that name) - it's inefficient, unpopular, cumbersome, beautiful, ugly, organised, clean, limiting - but there's one thing we can all agree on: it's unique and distinctive. CNet has published a profile of Microsoft's Albert Shum, the man behind Metro, and he highlights what I think is at the very core of Microsoft's problems in mobile right now.

The thing that would piss me off more is if half of the complaints are from *nix and Apple users, who wouldn't care about Windows anyhow.

You can visit Amazon to find out this is not the case.

Windows 8 has far more poor reviews than Windows 7. If it was just anti-MS hate then there wouldn't be such a divergence.
