    Wow, everyday Microsoft is changing something up, all this is going to go down as brilliance or one of the biggest flops the tech world has ever seen.

    There are still people in my company asking me how to turn on their computer, now imagine these same people trying to figure out how to use windows 8 on the home pc, it's going to be a wild ride.

    Yeah all this "Here today, gone tomorrow" cloud crap (Google too!) has to stop. Who's going to invest any time in anything new any more if the default ending is it'll just be pulled or rearranged beyond recognition every 12-24 months?
