    I'm pretty sure as with anyone there are people who will like and dislike it. I consider myself a normal person as I'm not a computer science person or a developer or even engineer. So I have basic knowledge about a computer. I personally have mixed feelings about windows 8. I love that they have a tablet operating system finally, where it is touch-based. But there are things I don't like about the user-interface and experience specifically tied to the desktop. I'm sure many are also having mixed feelings. But a lot also don't care about it period.

    Now on non-intuitiveness -> Different, but similar.

    First off, flying an airplane is non-intuitive, but not impossible. First learning to navigate one's way around a computer UI is also.

    As you can see, I've arranged the pictures of the planes in a time-progressive order. Orville Wright lived long enough and is rumored that he flew a Lockheed Constellation (pic #3) in 1944. He commented that the wingspan was longer than the distance of his first flight. Do you think it was intuitive to him? I don't think so, but it was not impossible.

    What do you think he would have thought had he seen #4 and #5 and you told him he had to fly them? If he could have, do you think it would have been intuitive to him? I think not, but it would not have been impossible for him to learn. Each model got more complex and more sophisticated. So have MS OSs.

    Well Area, you have that with people who do not know very well the OS

    If i was your customer, no way you could pull that off. I leave the shop and buy elsewhere.

    I buy what i want not what the seller wants. I speak in general, when i went for a new car, even if the seller offered a cheaper option, i still did what i want to do.

    I'm nor "normal" and I don't know any "normal" people, but I like Win8 and I think most people will once they get the previous versions of Windows out of their mind.

    Nice cherry picking, HippsieGypsie.
    These five failures cancel out your five successes and are but a fraction of the failures in aviation history:

    I think Windows 8 is a great improvement over Seven,if you can ignore the Modern UI!So much improvements,so much streamlining,so much cruft reduced,it would have been a hit if it wouldn't had forced the Modern UI on it's users!

    I just mean that i cannot be convinced NOT to use Win 8, but to each his own.

I also invest today and order a box of 50 Windows 7 OEM, so I'm ready for the other one who will need it.
    Smart planning.



    Don't even come with desktop mode or Metro, or registry or CMD... if you mention "file type", they think you are a nuclear scientist.
