    Good grief!

    An earlier member said that the customers Microsoft lost will never come back. If that's the case then I wonder why all you haters are still here. It's obvious that Microsoft lost your business so I would assume you would find a forum more suitable for your needs.

    I like Microsoft. I like Windows 8. That's why I'm still here.

    Rock on!

    M$ has not lost me yet I like Windows 8 it is the Metro that is not tolerable to me in any form. M$ will not loose me as a user but it has lost me as a customer. It also looks like it is not to popular on the Xbox one side either.

    Very simple... during OS installation:

    - seems you are using a touch device, do you prefere Modern UI? YES

    - seems you have a mouse/keyboard, do you prefere "classic" desktop and Start button/menu? YES

    Quite easy, Microsoft... and they all lived happily ever after

    There is very good reason why they didn't do that.

    To save me the effort Hey, Microsoft: It's the apps, stupid

    The squeaky wheel gets the grease, at least that's what some of us hope will happen. It's just that some are more vocal about it than others. A lot of them are likely using Windows 7 but I personally would rather see the Windows 8 complaints here than on the Windows 7 forum. This isn't a Windows 8 Likes Only forum by the way. < Not meant to be sarcastic, just saying.

    And it's not just a Windows 8 hate forum either. There's a fine line between criticism and hate and a sizable selection of people on this board are trending towards hate. Additionally, all of the "8 Hate" on this board is drowning out the people that actually have something constructive to contribute. I personally don't know why the "8 Hate" is given so much prominence here and elsewhere, it's like the objective is to cut Microsoft down at the knees for even thinking up Metro. People genuinely seem personally offended that Metro even exists.

    My point is this: Does Microsoft and Windows 8 mean so much in the grand scheme of things that they're worth the effort that the haters on this board give them? Don't you think that the haters would get bored and find something constructive to do? Is the Metro interface so politically and socially deviant that it needs a movement to combat it's gross misconduct perpetrated on humanity?

    All I know is that for something as trivial as a computer operating system I wouldn't waste my valuable time protesting it. I have more important things to do in my life.

    PS - I think all of the Metro hate is really just a scared reaction to change and where personal computers are heading. I really don't think it's about Metro at all.

    Totally agree, MaloCS.

    That's always the same story... many people forget what happened when XP arrived.
    Users and companies went to XP only after the release of SP3

    That is your personal interpretation.

    I don't know about that - but it does seem some get very offended at anything they perceive as the slightest criticism of a commercial product.

    There probably are many who have valid questions and concerns about what the cloud may mean for example. Cost, privacy, control are all areas which may be affected.

    Scared is a peculiar word. I don't think many are hiding behind the sofa. On the contrary, those who speak out and open these matters to debate are not scared at all. You might apply that word to those who just go along without question.

    I am a developer and DBA. I am forced to use MS software because that is what my clients use. I personally am affected by the OS interface on a daily basis. So, accordingly, I want my opinion known.
    I do not like the direction MS is taking with Windows 8 and I would like to see it changed. That is one of the primary reasons I read/post on this forum. My job and sole source of income is directly affected by the whims of MS. Just because these things have so little bearing on yourself doesn't mean it is that way for everyone.

    It works both ways for the extremists.. There are some that will flame you for any negative comment about Windows 8 and there are those that will go to great lengths to belittle anything positive you might say. There is also some honest criticism posted about issues that may affect one user but not another. There has been some cleanup and banning of members that took it too far. I try to not let it get to me, but nobodies perfect. Consequently I spend less and less time here and hang out more on the Windows 7 forums.
