    Let's tell MS what we think of Windows 8


    Indianatone posted a link on the sevenforums for a MS survey asking customers what they could do better. Let's tell them.

    I know that individual comments will land in the bin. But if thousands of comments come in saying the same thing, they will listen. They may still not do much about it. But once the pocket book hurts, we'll get action.

    They already have. Not many are buying this thing. That speaks volumes.

    Sales might pick up a bit. There is a limit to how long folk can hang on to what they already have. At some stage they have to get a new machine. Unless they can afford mac, it will have windows on it. The continued price slashing may have some effect as well.

    Along the lines of - didn't want to buy a machine with that on it - but my current machine is on it's last legs - the new devices look good - they are also very cheap now - oh well, I will have to put up with win8.

    If that happens, it just might encourage MS to keep their current method of pushing their monetisation strategy.

    If the pressure keeps up, it is more likely MS will actually respond to the market and use the Blue release to eradicate the deal breakers. That would be the best way for MS.

    There is also already a thread on ms forums - quite a few pages building up there.

    As I understand it, if you buy a new system, you have the right to ask for Windows 7. Maybe that is an option.

    I could use baby tiles on the Start Screen.

    More of a tetris like layout with the Start Screen versus the autogroup function, Windows Phone does this one great.

    Windows 8 needs more of the rich metro design versus the modern design, it's not terribly metro. I adore the metro design.

    Live tiles needs to be better show new unread content.

    I think the Start Screen could actually stand for having an image background. I was at my brother and sister-in-law's house the other day on their Xbox, the Dashboard is like Windows 8 except a custom image can be applied...

    Apps need to not be like ios or android apps, they need to be FULL FLESHED apps, or applications if we must.

    Windows 9 will be MY idea!

    Yes, sort of. I understand that is only for PRO. It is also often quite a hassle - in some cases not possible .

    I don't think Joe public knows about it. Even if they did - it is just too much hassle. They are staying away because win 8 is putting them off.

    Sadly, none of the things Cokie has suggested will help that.

    MS and the oems can just keep slashing prices to try and shift at least some stock, until MS can actually fix it. Not too long till windows blue.

    Yeah, not too long until Windows Blue goes ahead and leaves Windows 7 and some hell bent people in the dust...
