    Ever heard the saying "Can't teach old dogs new tricks" ? I have no probs adapting to change. But the majority of people not that way.

    I understand what you're saying. I think most of us develop a comfort zone with anything. Some old dogs just don't want to learn new tricks. That's normal.

    ANd a final thought. I am 56yrss young like a fine glass of wine.
    Anyways I digress. My whole point is you cannot sucessfully strip away all people know and expect them to be happy and feel they need to take a course to relearn how to use PC again! I am a wondows lover , always have been and always will be ! But you make major mistakes when you try to make windows a tablet or change everything and yes I know you say do this and the familarity returns. BUT when you buy it are you automatically brain implanted with the knowledge to know how to do the things you speak of? No ! The sleek should have been option and the familar the main, then you would not scare off people. Your also not figuring in people that use PC for business and do not want to have to have training classes for employees to show them how to use/navigate the NEW Win8. it is a loss of time and money. I can go on but surely by now you have gotten the point yes?

    It can, depending on the user and the usage.

    But for me, Vista works fine.

    If people need to take classes to figure out Windows 8, they shouldn't even be using a computer. Everything is largely the same. The start screen is nothing more than a full screen start menu. It's not hard to navigate at all. It's simply different than the start menu we've been using for over 15 years.

    How anyone can say it is the same is beyond me. As for saying that if people need to take classes to figure out windows 8, that is exactly the superior sort of attitude why i hate a lot of forums.I am trying to learn how to use it, i am finding it hard to get used to the metro screen, but i am probably not as intelligent as you.
    Denise, i know where you are coming from, but perhaps you could recommend people get on a forum, or maybe buy a book to help them.Windows 8 for dummies gets a good review plus it has a 4 hour DVD.I would consider buying one myself , as it would be easier than tryong from scratch

    All Microsoft had to do was leave the start button in the desktop and all would have been good. If the Modern interface was indeed as great as Microsoft believed, it would have sold itself and people would have naturally migrated to that over the desktop. Forcing people onto something, because it's for their own good, never works.

As title really. What are the chances of Windows 8 being to Windows 7 what Vista was to XP? Everyone seems to be very happy with Windows 7 so do you not think that Windows 8 will flop and everyone will just keep with 7?
