Dinobot: /Didn't like the demo we got at work
vartian: Hmmmm...so it's like a collection of Facebook apps?
CmndrFish: eriously, I take everybody that is biatching about Windows 8 about as seriously as the people that whine and cry every time Facebook changes.Deal with it, kids. Windows 8 is the future, because 80% of people don't need anything more than a tablet that has Office and a web browser. The full, x86, Windows PC is dead as a device that everybody has one, two, or three of.Microsoft recognizes it. That's why Windows 8 looks the way it does.Not to mention that Windows 8 is really a better desktop OS as well. It's significantly faster than 7. Hit the Windows key and start typing whenever you want to open up a program. You'll have it open and be on your way much faster than you ever would be in Win7. This is not in any way a half-baked product, it's a smart realization of a changing industry, and superior to Windows 7 on just about every level. And if you all took 10 minutes to learn how to use it instead of instantly recoiling in horror because it looks different, maybe you'd realize that.
kroonermanblack: I tried Linux.Your analogy is more closely related to 'its like buying a beater and spending all your spare time tweaking and fixing and tuning it and then acting like you're a better person than the guy driving a 300,000$ sports car.
Linux_Yes: Dear Monopoly$oft,God bless you for windows 8 too! you've been so very helpful.Sincerely,Linux
