Windows Now that Windows 8 has gone gold, Microsoft can move on to other things. With Windows 8, the most important of these is probably to make sure people know how to actually use it. Metro is filled to the brim with hard-to-discover features, but Microsoft has a plan. Will it be enough?

Also, most Windows sales are on new PCs, not existing ones. There is a regular churn as people upgrade their entire hardware and not just the OS it came with.

Of course, don't let me get in the way of armchair CEO ze_jerk face

One startling prerequisite for being a smartass know it all is actually, you know, having some insight.

Oh I'm sorry, I forget about all the OEMs lining up to build Windows tablets. I'm sure they also secretly have a gamut of laptops with touchscreens. They're just keeping them hidden.

But don't worry, I'm sure their $600 surface tablet will sell like hotcakes in this economy. More expensive than the iPad with less than 5% of the game selection.

Everything Microsoft makes is totally awesome and will sell like crazy. Hang on while I take a call on my Kin while listening to my brown Zune.
