re: Microsoft's Journey May Leave Too Many Behind
Can we all quit crying about Win 8.x on the desktop, already? I use VS2012, Office 2013, Office 365, every brand of browser, manage servers at data centers in 3 different states, and, get ready for it... my Win 8.1 machine boots directly to the desktop, and looks, feels and works like my desktop from Win 8 which evolved from my Win 7 desktop, which evolved slightly from my old XP, which was begat by Win 98, which was begat by Win 95, whose father was Win 3.x.
Your IT will build an image for your desktop machines that will more or less duplicate your old desktop. Deal!
Also, can we quit with the prognostications about the death/near-death of MS.
Now, get back to work!
