re: Windows 8: A Bridge Too Far For Enterprises?
wow, um just wow. So much wrong in this whole article. OMG users with a mouse have to move to a corner to get the charms, so don't ever use the new OS that provides crap tons more benefits than what you barely list. The whole windows RT is no different at all than Mac OS vs iOS. Exactly the same thing going on here with microsoft. Apple seems to be doing just fine last time I checked, having a tablet OS and a Desktop OS.
But the biggest thing is you write this as too big bridge for enterprise and say not one thing about all the huge enterprise advantages it provides, nor in your bashing even talk about what enterrprise would consider the pains of the OS, which is user's trying to tie in personal accounts to synch skydrives, or having access to an application store where they can add games and more on their machines, and having to learn all of the new AD settings and for all intensive purposes needing to update their AD to 2012 to get all the bells and whitsles they need to support windows 8. So you wasted everyone's time copy and pasting the whole WHY tech journalist hate metro UI, that we have read for months. Suck it up metro is nothing but a normal users desktop.
How does the average business person use their computer, they have 40 short cut icons to all of their programs, and websites they need on their desktop and when they want to open something, they go to their desktop and click on the shortcut icon. Hell that sounds a crap ton just like metro UI, a desktop with all of your program shortcuts.
Sorry but you fail for the whole misdirect to get readers headline, then fail to write your article about your headline,and then just copy and paste metro UI hate, even while providing link to stats that the general consumer likes it more than hate it.
