    So what you're saying is that despite the negative buzz about the Start Button and the new Metro and RT, all the consumers who would have bought Windows 8 at launch still bought it? And the negative buzz and confusion didn't hurt sales significantly?

    You can't be that delusional.

    *sigh*

    First off RT edition of windows is fine. It is a ARM based operating system that provides numerous advantages over any other tablet in the market. It is also specifically designed to port windows 8 applications made in the store by providing a new compiling method.

    xxxx I know that and you know that. Most consumers don't especially since there was no educational campaign to inform them. It also (confusingly) looks EXACTLY like Windows 8 but is not. Lots of head scratching...


    Second, providing "training" for a new operating system is a bad idea. Why would you buy a product that requires you to be trained in order to use it?

    xxxx Great point! If something is so complex that it needs "explanation" maybe you should retweak before you release it? Just saying...


    Third, stating that Microsoft blatantly ignored beta testing is flat out wrong. If they honestly didn't care about the feedback, 8.1 would simply not exist.

    xxxx 8.1 is a fix to an Operating System. A fix of things that should have been caught in basic UAT. You are basically saying that Microsoft treated a product rollout like an advanced User Acceptance Test. If you know anything about technology you know how sacrilegious that statement is.


    And finally, just because you think Windows will fail, does not mean that the company will. There are several other profitable divisions within Microsoft and they are holding themselves quite well for a market that is moving away from personal computers.


    xxxxx I don't think Windows will fail. Not sure where you got that one. I acknowledge the company is strong but there can be no dispute that the Windows division has some challenges right now.

    Thanks for the comments.
