re: Windows 8 To Run Windows 7, And Vice Versa
OBOY! Windows 8 "lets users run a virtual instance of Windows 7 within Windows 8!"
So what? I can boot a virtual machine inside win7 too.
And if I did, why the %$#! would it be win 8? MS has given not a SINGLE reason for anyone but teenage girls to use 8. And every week, I read something else that makes it hard to believe they're not commuting software-suicide on purpose.
Two weeks ago I discovered they're not including a DVD player. Even though they're free all over the net, it seems that MS figures they'll make you pay extra for something included in the previous release, like spreadsheet auditing in Excel 2010.
Then last week, I found out it won't play music from a network drive. In fact, it can't even do domains(!) This week it was when I read that IE in 8 ignores active X.
What?? ActiveX is Microsoft's main web technology! Or, it WAS.
"Was" is becoming Microsoft's nickname.
Windows 8 will be known for decades as Ballmer's Last Mistake. In January, when not a single copy of 8 has been bought on purpose, the board (and maybe even Gates) will finally have had enough. Sinofsky will be gone too, if they have any sense, as he's responsible for this abomination.
But when was the last time Microsoft management had any sense?
8 is the same mistake they make every time. They do what they think is best for Microsoft instead of what's best for the users.
But that's not the mistake. Their mistake is thinking there's a difference.
BTW, yes, I'm really a homeless ex- IT manager. I live naked in a cave because I'm completely fed up with the stupidity of the so-called "real", business world. I can't decide if American business is so stupid they act crazy, or so crazy they act stupid. tiny url dot com slash kanecave
