Windows "Microsoft's communications chief has a tough job these days, and with Windows 8 is under attack from all sides he's bravely called for a return to the center and a less partisan conversation about the new OS. There's just one problem: The periodicals he’s called out for engaging in 'sensationalism and hyperbole' are in fact right about Microsoft's strategy. And ignoring that is the real problem."

My point I guess is that it depends on i you buy into Microsoft's core strategy. If you do, you'll find that Windows 8.1 advances that goal and makes it easier to use from a Desktop and within the enterprise.

I'm taking a 'wait and see' approach. I did not care for Metro at all on Win8, but I don't want to see a 360 happen either. For now, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. If it's still ass in 5 years or so, we'll know they screwed up.

The traditional Win32 desktop is a clusterfuck of framework on top of framework. Even if they don't succeed, I applaud Microsoft for at least making an attempt to move on.
