I said this in another thread, but I'll re-post it here as it seem appropriate to the topic:
"That last REAL major interface overhaul Microsoft did was Windows 95 and it was a SMASH hit. Windows 8 is the first MAJOR interface overhaul Windows has had since Windows 95. I tried it and I liked it. I think word of mouth will sell this os (and processors) like hot cakes. I never had much faith in it till I tried it. I work with computers all day as an IT admin and I was really impressed, I think the general public will be as well. Quarter 4 should see INTC back in the 23 to 24 range, but time will tell for sure. If you haven't tried the new interface, give it a go and see what you think for yourself."
