Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums


This will be Microsofts biggest ever flop, far bigger than Vista.

    Unless some radical changes in technology happen soon, a tablet or a mobile phone can never edit a movie, typset a book or perform any of the thousands of jobs you can do on a PC.

    And you can tell all those people that you know who are buying PCs to twit and to be on fb that they are wasting money. A tablet will do that.

    And by the way, I too build my own PCs:

    My current system is an Asus MB: Intel Core i7: Quadro GPU: 24 GRam: all neatly packed in a full Coolermaster case running on Win 7 Ultimate with multiple (3) 27" screens.

    Given that Microsoft's response to complaints about Metro, was to remove the Registry hack, so that everyone is now forced to use it, I anticipate that they won't respond positively to any new complaints.

    I wouldn't be surprised, if they did something like totally remove the Power button (since people have complained about it).

    There must be two Deskjets on here, one who thinks its going to be a failure and the other who thinks it just needs tweakin. While I agree that for a business it might seem a bit of a shock with the Metro Tiles at first, but that one click and you're on the desktop doesnt seem that tough to me.
    I just dont want to see too much negativity, because I want MS to succeed with this, I couldnt live in Apple dominated world, the Fanboys make me sick. I just hope people take the time to learn this, it doesnt seem that hard to me, just a little different.

    I would go back to a typewriter before buying anything Apple. But the core business for Microsoft and Windows IS business, not games, shopping online or twittering. In that sense, someone at MS has their priorities upside down.

    I've got too many computers to list, including my netbooks and Home theatre computers, I would really go broke if I had to replace all this stuff with Apple computers, so long live Microsoft.

    I think for Microsoft to stay successful they really have to nail the tablet and phone industry, or they are going to be in trouble.

    It's the Disco Stu Fallacy.

    Did Apple give an IPhone style to their OSX ? ...So why Microsoft have to do so to sell phone ? I can leave with the Metro. Aside forcing us to us Metro, Windows 8 is a great improvement, Microsoft just push a little bit too far imposing the Metro to everyone. Metro make thing at the Media Center, did I use it ? no, nut I'm not force too. Windows 8 will be such a great OS if Metro will be an add on.
