Windows Paul Allen, one of Microsoft's co-founders who left the company long ago, has posted on his blog about his experiences with Windows 8. He (surprise) likes it, but he does note a number of shortcomings and oddities - all of which are spot-on. However, he fails to address the core issue with Windows 8: it's forcing users to drill a small hole in the wall with a belt sander.

What Microsoft hasn't considered is the influence Power Users have in the companies they work for, many control whether a company will upgrade or not.


The Microsoft ecosystem is mostly not ready for companies to upgrade to Windows 8. For enterprise they are still pushing their customers through the WinXP -> Win7 migration which is less disruptive. The serious immediate threat, i.e the threat for the 2010's is on the consumer side.
