re: Windows 8 Fizzling, Time For Windows Classic?
IF you know enough to make win8 boot directly into desktop, IF you needed the pro features, and IF you were savvy enough to get it for 14.99, then it is a fantastic bargain, as it is faster and has some nice touches over win7. For the other 98 percent of the world, bigger disaster than Microsoft Bob. I have 3 units running at work that users have no problem with, as well as a laptop with an 80 year old former xp user that is not having problems. Why? Because I spent about an hour on each unit banishing Metro. I needed Remote Desktop Server, and win8 pro for 14.99 beats win7 pro at 199.00. And that is probably the reason there were sales early. But as an OS that the average user could use, Bigger Fail than ME, and Vista. Seems that folks have no problem using Android and Windows. So why not two different systems from Ballmer, or at least an OS smart enough to figure out which interface you need? Oh. Balmer. Developers! Developers, Developers! Win 1 Commercial. Ballmer is a Buffoon. Or a Bassoon, the ill wind which no one blows good.
