Don't excuse the defects and lack of testing in Windows 8 with a simple distraction to pointless elementary exercises. Any monkey can test systems and move files.
    So are you saying the service you paid for works with Windows Media Player, the one that is still there in Windows 8?

    You mean Windows Media Center? Media Player itself is still there. I personally have that feature turned off.

    Windows 8 is no longer supporting the Rhapsody service and Windows version of Media Player is only available in Windows 8 Pro for an extra fee and is designed as an app that is not compatible the the Rhapsody media service they endorsed for years and multiple versions of Windows OS that we downloaded with licensing rights to the tune of over 36,000 songs. Another point and just one of many from other experienced IT professionals "Microsoft has done itself a great disservice by coming up with a fairly interesting, unique approach to the ecosystem problem, and then letting substandard marketing heighten people's questions and uncertainties. Windows 8 will struggle in a consumer marketplace that is increasingly turning to Macs to solve its problems."

    This loss of support in our industry for mobile agility by Microsoft's lack of foresight in design will ultimately be at great expense to Microsoft and the considerable loss of it's customer base.

    I have to say, you must be confusing something because Windows Media Player, the EXACT same one from Windows 7, is still in Windows 8. Windows Media CENTER however, is a feature that needs to be upgraded to. See, I don't know how Rhapsody To Go works, could you describe how it's used? Such as, do you use Media Player or Media Center to use the service?

    macs....

    TOTALLY WITHIN MICROSOFT'S CONTROL

    TOTALLY WITHIN MICROSOFT'S CONTROL. Point is null when you have a design by a company with alternative strategy. Everything was fine until GREED AND CONTROL STEPPED IN.

    ENDPOINT FOR MICROSOFT: Failure to launch by design unacceptable or conducive to existing customers.

    Windows 8 Point and fact: A few weeks ago, a new and free Windows 8 app was approved by Microsoft to be published on the Windows Store. The app was titled Windows 8 Complaints and it was designed solely to allow people to write up their issues with Microsoft's latest PC operating system. According to the app's description: Windows 8 Complaints app allows you to post your complaints and read/listen to the complaints of others. Whether you miss the start button or you don't like the color purple that they use, let it be known and listen to the thoughts of others to gain new ideas on why you don't like Windows 8. Windows 8 Complaints app was no longer available for download from the Windows Store. The app's page has also been taken down.

    The complaint demand on beta was so overwhelmed they pulled it.

    Plain and simple. Microsoft needs a Windows 8 for "mobile" devices and one for "business PC" productivity, tasking and seamless transition consistent with previous compliance and compatibility.

    Leave out the double talk and excuses.

    Actually, it's interesting that you mention that. There was a complaints app that was removed. The publisher was contacted and said that HE took it off the Windows Store because it became a cesspool of people just trolling around and saying Windows 8 sucks and whatnot. The purpose of the app, according to the developer, was to promote a forum of people with issues dealing with Windows 8 and people to help solve them, much like these forums. Here, we try to solve issues with Windows 8 versus dismissing it as moot, at least of the time.

    The developer has said he will republish the app, but with features to make it more of a forum. He said he supports and loves using Windows 8. So....
