"Everyone's obsessed with the look of the thing. What do I care about a Start button in Windows 8 if I spend all
my time on the desktop? It's the lack of good applications [that's hurting Windows]. And from what I can tell, developers aren't going to get anything from Blue. I don't see anything about apps getting better."
To prove his point, Cherry pointed to the apps Microsoft has created for Windows 8 and Windows RT, such as the "Mail, Calendar, People and Messaging" app.
"If that's the best Microsoft
can do, if that's what they come up with, with their
resources, it's no surprise that there's not a [third-party] app worth a darn," said Cherry.
