    Instead, we should be seeing things like, "Oh, this is different in Windows 8. I can easily now add a tiny sub-division to my small business to deal with that for my customers" - or similar - what I mean is clear enough.

    All that stuff is creating employment. Every single last person getting paid to deal with anything computers really has Microsoft to thank in no small part. It's all by design and intended.

    They'll gather results, interpret them and then implement the exact opposite.

    Just like how they use their so-called telemetry data.

    That's another good sumation seen there of how Windows 8 be labeled the portable OS not intended for desktop use! It's looks fancy on a geek's presentation screen but not for the practical every day productive user or the typical mom and pop PC for that matter.

    What we are still waiting to see more of however is what other new things does 8 bring along it besides the Metro? What else would want anyone to upgrade out of a working OS(7) which automatically saw a hugh success into a real mess up of an OS in the next version?
