    Tough Times for Win 8 and MS


    On top of fines and taxes, Microsoft got bad news on Windows RT, Windows 8, and Office 2013

    ...Demand for Windows 8 is also failing to meet expectations...

    Microsoft...is looking like "a tired technology corporation scrambling to protect its cash cows on the legacy PC desktop and failing to gain traction in the new markets of note...

    Let's hope they get it right with Blue and it turns around for them.

    Oh well, looks like I'll have to brush up on my Linux and hope Apple brings out a $499 MacBook Pro. I wonder how easy it is to build one of those MacIntosh thingies.

    Looks like the Windows people are winning.

    A little easier than a Surface PRO but not much.

    Is that a picture of you Bill?

    I ask because the title suggests it.

    This is not what Microsoft needs.
    You are not helping.

    You need to accept it is not everybody else who is to blame.

    MS have not got it right.

    They can change it - bit more difficult now perhaps, but it can be done, and I think they know how.

    I am looking forward to it.

    Yeah that's me when I still had my looks.

    I'm starting to think you're right, okay I hate the MPI and lack of a Start Menu, I hate the hot corners, I hate the charms bar, I hate the one click onto the desktop, I hate the lock screen, I hate the tiles, I hate the Store, I hate the Surface RT and I think I even hate the Surface Pro.

    Actually I even hate that it's more secure and boots faster and that file transfers are faster.

    Its just a Windows 7 world or maybe even an XP world or maybe an Apple or Google world.

    Don't judge the surface pro until you have spent a whole weekend trying to use it exclusively. ��

    Go ahead tell us all about it, try not to be too positive.
    I might not know English but I know people, that's why I made the above sarcastic comment, I knew what you would do..

    And hey, who cares, Ray8 would have been a lot harsher in his criticism.
