    Funny that everyone else can see what the majority of desktop users want, except Microsoft and a few on this forum.

    In the world of Windows (new versions) just give it a couple of months and someone will come up with something to give those who do not like the new version what they are looking for. In this case Modern UI apps can now be used as if it was a desktop program. . .
    Exactly Lee, even Windows Blue could make more people happy, lets just see how it all plays out. But it doesn't matter what happens, there is no way on this planet that Microsoft will make everybody happy.
    In the meantime folks make the most of it.

    Microsoft already knows what the majority of people want, they've admitted that, problem is that's going to sign their death warrant.

    The world is changing time to get rid of the Bell Bottom trousers and high heel shoes.

    I hear that electric cars are the future as well and if car makers don't move to electric, it's their death warrant.

    Yep , that's it .

    We will see what Blue offers. Get those 1.5bn on MS side. Introduce them to apps store, skydrive, bing gadgets (apps they call them now ). Let them have the option to boot to desktop - and stay there. Something on the desktop to get around, access controls, shut down options, recent itmes, flyout drives - without absurd unergonomic weirdness. They could feature their schemes heavily there. Users can fire those up as and when they choose - not being thrust at them full screen. Don't have the darn things covering up the screen, and provide a sensible way of closing them.

    Then they won't be repelled by it. They are much more likely to go for the tablets, phones and everything else.

    That is not windows 8 anymore then. It is windows some other number or name.Windows that will sell.

    The car companies are already dead, they're owned by Governments, I don't know any car companies that can stand on its own two feet.

    Gadgets are Widgets, apps are small programmes, one click to the desktop, no need to shutdown apps or programmes in Windows 8, it's like IOS or Android., there's a $5 app that can resize Metro apps.

    Okay what else.

    To be perfectly honest, choice isn't a bad thing. People who compute for work and as a hobby are probably going to stay Windows, people who compute for play are being fought over by Google(those who like to some have control over their experience) and Apple(those who simply want it to work and for whom Facebook represents the epitome of high technology)

    Right now, Microsoft is positioning itself for big growth into the markets(but nobody will ever have as big a monopoly as they once had with the PC), Apple is starting to understand they're getting hung out to dry by both Google and Microsoft and are very much a hardware-dependent company, and Google is pretty much staying the course comfortable in doing what they do.

    Of these, Apple is the one with the worst strategy going forward, and it shows in whats happening with the stock price.

    I'm not even convinced they've got a strategy, they panicked when 7" tablets came out, and they panicked when the Surface Pro came out.
    I think they're like a ship without a rudder, imagine buying into their shares at $700 and the price going down to $400, and then the CEO coming out and saying,"Don't worry about the share price", nothing like losing half your money in a few months.

    Oh yeah and now they're bringing out a cheap plastic phone, something they've always rubbished and said they'd NEVER do, like the iPad Mini, 7" is too small.

    It is up to MS to fix what is putting buyers off.

    You holding them in contempt is not going to make them buy it. If they saw your posts , it would put them off even more. You are a reverse role model.
