Windows "Many PC OEMs are dissatisfied with what Microsoft has done with Windows 8 and the way the company has handled the negative response to the operating system. Privately, one OEM source told me that Microsoft is 'destroying' the PC industry, while another claimed that Windows 8 has 'handed over millions of customers to Apple'. Other OEMs are making their displeasure known publicly. Both Lenovo and Samsung have released Start button replacements for Windows 8." Windows Phone isn't the only thing not catching on. I'm really happy with my Surface RT - warts and all - but there's no denying the response to Windows 8 has been Vista-esque bad.

I also don't thinks it's as simple as a UI rejection.

I haven't used Win myself in years, but I was excited by there concept when it came out. I like the tile concept (it's better than a menu) and I have littleuse for a desktop (moet userdesktops ar either a few static program launchers, or a cluttered mess.)
Now that I've had a chance to use it for a while, I reject it t for poor quality, and some missing UX (windows switcher sux', and the IE experience is horrible.)
