I understand, you love Windows 8 and you would seem to defend it no matter how bad and disastrous other consumers would see it but that was sarcastic of you!/QUOTE]
Maybe, maybe not, I don't know if you were around when Windows came out, but there were a lot of people against it. Also look at the commotion over Vista and ME, I never had any problems with ME, and Vista was a bit heavy on older systems but you could tweak it to run well. Funnily enough I had a lot of problems with Windows 98.
Also I don't see Apple asking their customers what they want, with them, it's my way or the highway. I don't know if I love Windows 8' it's an operating system that I don't mind, and I can see the possibilities for Microsoft.
Maybe I should stay off the net every time Microsoft comes out with a new version and not listen to all the commotion. Anyway, I hope Microsoft makes everybody happy, but they'd have to close down( sarcasm).
