I really don't understand the issues. I have done this with one very simple free application added to Windows 8. I default to the Windows 8 desktop and have a start menu. Why cant people just look at their alternatives instead of judging?

Very good summary of the MS situation. just left out one thing: MS has to stop the bleeding ASAP. the PC market will nearly freeze as people wait for Blue before committing to a new PC. if Blue is set for August, that is 1/3 of a year of lost sales from now. and the OEM's are screaming already. any further delay would be a near catastrophe.

and MS better not offer only a half-way fix with Blue. that could be fatal - the apocryphal "beginning of the end."

While we're at it, let's bring back 8-tracks, BetaMax and LaserDiscs. If left to their own devices, most individuals prefer to keep the status quo; it's the companies that drive innovation and pull people there, albeit sometimes begrudgingly. People like things the way they are, change is bad but after 3,6,9 months and some time "behind the wheel" then all of a sudden they can't live without it. Give it a chance; YES it's different, YES it's a learning curve, but in the end, it's less clicking. I have Surface and a laptop both running Windows 8 and even as a technologist, it took me several days to get use to it before I felt comfortable in navigating around quickly.
