    • The trouble is that Microsoft realizes that the traditional PC is a mature market. It is now aiming at the Tablet and phone market which is what Windows 8 is really designed for. You can't please everyone, I guess. Yes the Start button drop is controversial but is will work in the long run because of touch screen adoption. BTW, get StartMenue 8 and you can get the button back.

      • yeah, one can do lots of leg work to make windows 8 look like win 7... but what is the point? It is like how do u avoid login in windows 8 on bootup? Why do I even need to log in on bootup to begin with? and no one wants to go through OS manual to figure out how to avoid login so you have search instructions from tech blogs to do it. yeah, techno geeks will spend the time and effort to make their experience better with win 8 because you'll need to play around with the setup and try to figure things out, but when u are delivering a product to the masses, most of them will be completely lost and will grow frustrated very easily and just give using this clunky mess...and go to a Mac probably.

      • Touch screens are too expensive. That's why nobody I know has one. Well, except on their iPad.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • Touch screens are nasty germ ridden things. A touch screen on a small screen works why on earth would you want one at home??? The problem is all of MSFT is drinking the cool aide, why don't they put out their flying car OS it's coming out in the near future.

    • One has to wonder product development process at MSFT... they had success with win 7 so why try to reinvent the wheel? and when they decided to reinvent the wheel, did they test the product out step by step with some group of public users first before putting in billions and years of investment? or do they blindly just put out whole new programs out there and just hope and pray consumers will like it. Given so many complaints, it suggests they didn't do any product testing at all... scary and speaks volumes as to the lack leadership and vision of Ballmer. Low 20's are coming.

      Microsoft should listen to this: Lots of people HATE Metro and don't want to buy it. Try to force Windows 8 Metro on the world and it will be another fiasco like Vista. The back end of Windows 8 isn't bad. It runs well on most hardware. The front end Metro graphical interface is the dealbreaker. Better luck with Windows 9. I won't be buying Windows 8.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell
