Re: CRAP IS CRAP, EVEN IF IT'S FREE
I have to agree with John, MS has lost it big time. They keep pushing crazy, like Bing, Window 8, and their terrible Windows Phone. Pushing billions at these loser products isn't going to make people buy them. I used to be excited about the latest MS Office and their newest OS. Now I want nothing to do with them as the UI gets worse each release.
And as far as the article about "MS need to be commited to their new UI", I think the author meant they needed to be "commited for coming up with such a lame UI". They didn't design it for desktops, yet they are pushing it for desktop usage - CRAZY!
I really hope MS can turn it around with Windows 9, and come up with a desktop OS that is usable. No more hidden "secret" menus, no crazy tablet or phone features for my desktop. No touch screen requirements for my desktop - I'll never be raising my arm hundreds of times a day to smear my monitor. I'm a developer, using MS products to develop software. I'll never be using a tablet to do that.
