    You shouldn't be confused, only those that love Windows 8 appear to want no criticism of the OS, the rest are easy going and quite liberal about open discussion.

    I had to pick myself up off the floor and wipe the spew off my keyboard after reading this. I wholeheartedly agree.

    You made my day, thanks Rickkins!

    Some ominous comments from the delightful Tami:

    Ms Reller said PC users had faced difficulties adapting to the new software.
    Since when is not liking something a "difficulty" - except in the sense that it is a difficulty for MS.


    changes were needed to make Windows 8 easier to navigate and capable of taking full advantage of the technology improvements that have come out since October.
    Technology improvements - surely you can't be referring to yet more metro stuff - you used the word improvement.


    "We've considered a lot of different scenarios to help traditional PC users move forward as well as making usability that much better on all devices"
    Move forward? To what - let me guess - more metro stuff. Why is that described as forward rather than different, or sideways , or backward?


    It looks like a big push - the spin is going into overtime.

    Those ridiculous comments by MS Tami Reller show what happens when you have MBAs running the show at a company. It is utter ARROGANCE to insult the customer as she is by claiming that they can't learn how to use it. OUTRAGEOUS!

    The fact is that the Metro UI is NOT practical on traditional PC and laptops. The traditional desktop continues to be the most productive way to operate these computers.


    Bill Gates, Paul Allen, and the shareholders need to send a message to Mr. Ballmer....

    STOP INSULTING THE CUSTOMER.

    Well I'm close....Stevie "wonder" Ballmer dropped out of the Stanford MBA program to help start MS...well he still must have learned enough garbage in that program to behave just like a full fledged MBA. LOL

    I doubt that Microsoft is about to do a U-turn yet.

    I believe that Microsoft is busy polishing and tying ribbons around the above mentioned object hoping that is all it will take for people to like it.

    I'm sure there are.

    It isn't a well kept secret that the legions of MBAs that come out of these expensive schools often times have little or no experience or knowledge about how to actually run a business successfully.

    Heck even former GM boss Bob Lutz stated that MBAs are killing US companies.
