From all your posts that I have read, I can assume that you are just an average sheep that the market wants.
Oh, Windows 8 is a overhyped, overrated OS.

Sticking with Windows 7 until something that could replace 7 comes out.

Sure, go ahead and assume that. Honestly, I have no issues with being an average sheep. In fact, I think the average sheep is what the market wants, and thus, I represent what the market wants. :D

Yeah...sorry about that. I realized that I was being stupid and edited my post. I guess i'm just tired of seeing hate comments on literally every single Windows 8 thread here on WM. *shrugs*

Looks like they forgot the part where we use the mouse in that video :P

To address this, all of those operations done by touch gestures you saw in the video can be done with the mouse as well. It works.

If you guys are still knocking Metro, then you really need to try it out. A lot has changed since the DP.

We're techies. This is what techies do.

But to me, Windows 8 looks like it's made for the non-techies...
The kinds of that just use it to browse Facebook and such...

And if this is the future? I hear Linux is getting bigger

Well, I wasn't going to be a dick about it, but it appears your comment warrants it.


What OS is constantly turned down by the consumer market? Linux.
What OS can never reach past 1% market share? Linux.
What OS is constantly pushed and pulled in new directions, by warring developers? Linux.
What OS has a UI that is quite literally, all over the place that makes its use impossible? Linux.
What OS has little to no backing or support by third parties? Linux.
What OS has to constantly mask itself to look like Windows to get people to even *look* at it? Linux.




Seriously, the metro start screen hate is getting old. It's still he same Windows we know underneath, and if you wanna continue pissing and moaning because the start menu now encompasses the entire screen, and you can't be bothered to take extra effort to learn new things, then so be it. But keep in mind this is the future. There is no going back.

People like you really piss me off.
You could do the world a favor by shutting up when talking about stuff you obviously don't know about (the Linux part).

You sound like one of those commercials by Microsoft that twists the truth so much it becomes a lie, i didn't think people actually believes that shit.

Well that's another techies will have to get over and deal with. Your average computer user is not a techy. I mean how often do you meet someone offline that you could have a technical conversation with about computers. Companies need to appeal to the majority not the minority lest they want to file Chapter 8.

I'm sorry for you, you don't even know what Linux really is about.

Prove him wrong then.

That's why others shouldn't be knocking Windows 8, *which they know nothing of*.

BTW, I do run Ubuntu on the side, and as a consumer it holds little value to me. I can't game on it, I can't listen to Zune on it... About all it's good for is doing my banking. It's a mess, literally and figuratively.

This is EXACTLY the point. Well said. I hate to say it, but "power users" are the minority. You're inconsequential to the tech world. That's great that you can sit there and tweak the OS to the core, but no one does that. No one. Apple knows this, and Microsoft knows this. Windows 8 has simply been a long time coming - Just look how everyone bitched about the "simplicity" of Windows 7. Consumers have a one track mind, they give very little attention, and if anything is too complicated, then forget it, your product is DOA *cough* Linux *cough*.


The thing of it is, there IS a shift in computing. There's no denying it now. Consumers want simpler devices, simpler methods of computing. Metro delivers that. iOS delivers that. Desktop Linux.... Not so much.
Microsoft could either remain in the past with you power users, or move forward with the consumers. What choice would you have made?
