    Based on the sales so far, and the reactions of users and Microsoft's partners, it looks increasingly clear that Windows 8 is not a winner. It's hard to know if the operating system will ever take off.
    Ya, but did any of the users or partners "actually use the software?"

    Hey, did I do that right?

    Talking to most of the regulars around here you would think they are the only ones with a valid opinion. Looks like worlds population and businesses are not buying into Windows 8.

    What happened?
