    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64 bit), Linux Mint 17.1 MATE (64 bit)

    Fair enough

    I go from the assumption that few people will buy Windows 8 to upgrade their current systems - for all the reasons stated here. So the majority of the future Windows 8 users wil be on new systems.
    That sounds believable to me.

    It does seem that the majority of the 'positives' are after folks have tried Win8 for a while. That's not how it is in the real world and it will be a first impression scream of 'where's the start button'. No doubt it will 'sell' on the new stuff but the OEM's may take the backlash over this then some real screaming will begin.

    Hope it doesn't finish up like that as I'd like to see MS start giving the Apple mob a run for their money. Getting fed up with hearing about how good Apple kit is simply because it looks nice!! LOL

    Vista and Win7


    I would not worry about Apple. All Apple systems put together have less market share than Vista. They are just blown up nobodies. Apple got rich because of their smart and very controlled marketing strategy.

    I could never understand why people pay the prices they do for Apple's proprietary stuff. Like I mean even industries like cd recording facilities and Hollywood.

    Windows makes it all happen well. Perhaps it was the XP and prior audio stack they shyed away from.

    For the same reason they buy BMW cars.

    I switch happily between Metro and the desktop. If you don't like Metro, you can use desktop only. And you can use Metro only. MS isn't forcing anybody to do anything.

    Hummmm a Mark 7 is a US navy 16" battleship gun and a M60 is a US machine gun , a SS will have a German Walther P38 or a Mauser or a Luger for revolvers or a MP38/40 for submachine guns

    They buy it as it's a fashion accessory. Then afterwards they find out whether it works for them or not. But no one ever admits to making a mistake after buying an Apple. And once they've got you 'locked' in then you're in!!!
