Windows For weeks - if not months - I've been trying to come up with a way to succinctly and accurately explain why, exactly, Windows 8 rubs me the wrong way, usability-wise. I think I finally got it.

I realize you don't want to continue the conversation, but I'm not sure why you'd post that I failed at anything. I simply reported some facts.

The conversation was that someone spent $200K a year in licensing[1], and I said they should be on an EA. You assumed it was desktop licensing[2], and you still don't know what my server costs are, because I didn't tell you how many servers, CPU, SQL instances, etc. So you're really not in a position to understand the value of my agreement.

Adam_S,

"I realize you don't want to continue the conversation, but I'm not sure why you'd post that I failed at anything. I simply reported some facts."

Oh please, I never said that and you know it. How many times must I apologize for making a wrong assumption? Please stop criticizing me for it!

Are you a native English speaker?

This is literally two comments up:

you have to admit you failed to correct the context in which it was easy to assume you were talking only about desktop licensing costs by themselves


All I was doing is saying that an EA covers everything and that you can't just divide the total cost by users to determine the cost per user. That's it. I don't know what the rest of this thread is for.
