Windows 8 flops
Make it as hard as possible to change the system and then wonder why the next system flops! Microsofts business model is reaching its logical limits.

Are they working on Windows 9 now? Can you smell the hope?

Investors will soon flee that company as licenses have no future.

"The world will soon wake up to the reality that everyone is broke and can collect nothing from the bankrupt, who are owed unlimited amounts by the insolvent, who are attempting to make late payments on a bank holiday in the wrong country, with an unacceptable currency, against defaulted collateral, of which nobody is sure who holds title."

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

Recently bought 3 brand new unopened copies of Windows 7 for $80!

I'm set for quite a few years.... From what I've seen Windows 8 only makes sense if you're on a touch screen device.

You sir, have no idea.

Windows 8 is actually completely different to previous versions due to the fact it was designed primarily for TABLET PC'S. Touch-based user interfacing! Please stop talking.

Android with a mouse keyboard GUI. Think ubuntu but with native support for all android software in windowed boxes.

Probably already working on it, my guess is it will be free too.

Re: Windows 8 flops
Very few people out in the mainstream user world like 8.

Some of the younger tech types like it but I can't stand it.
Oh I can use it, conquered it got used to it but I don't really see the point and it's not looking good for future versions of what should now be called "Tiles" instead of windows.

Sure I can make it like 7 but why bother making it like 7 when you can have 7?

I already wiped 8 off and installed 7 on half a dozen laptops.

The performance advantages are minimal and will probably be back ported anyway.

Big game makers have declared 8 to be DOOM!

7 will be with us a LONG time but it's time to freshen up my Linux skills! Who knows what the world will be like 20 years from now.

Win XP debuted in 2001 and I'm typing from it at work...
