    People will stay with Win7 as long as possible. That looks horrific. The UI of some braindead moron out to grab casuals. NO THANKS. And if this keeps up I will switch OS's completely because when they dump 7 you know there will be more options out there.

    So I guess you are classing me as a brain dead moron? As I have Windows 8, and I have hardly any issues with it.

    well it's not that damn start button or menu. i used to get excited with every leak about Windows betas. i remember those longhorn and blackcomb days, in websites such as deviantart there were millions of Vista themes or clones. but now, a full screen calc., an app about health and fitness or an orange toyish dragon background whatever. so sad.

    Perhaps you need to look at how dominant Tablets and Smartphones are?

    I love windows 8. It's faster and more stable than Win7.

    Because no one needs a PC anymore. Also a Tablet or Smartphone can do pretty much anything a PC can.

    I don't see how you can compare a feature rich service pack to full builds of a new operating system like Vista. 8.1 is intended to fix a bunch of very specific problems the platform has and that's it.

    Microsoft needs to rethink it's entire strategy if they plan on competing with Google and Apple in the mobile space.

    While his post was worded poorly his point is still correct. The vast majority of general users aren't buying PC's. I know several people who have bought iPads, gen 2 and 3's that have completely replaced their laptop and desktop PC's. Moving forward these people are not going to be buying traditional computers anymore.

    As mobile processing becomes more powerful, there will be even less of a need for desktop and laptops. Just dock phones to everything and run it all on there.

    I play games on my PC. I use my phone to check emails etc on the go. Always good to have a constructive argument, unlike yourself.

    Like Ghosty said constructive argument without calling eachother names....ontopic i like 8 allot and,you need time to get used to it.On the other hand when 7 came out i hated the looks of aero so much,i always ran it on classic view.Windows 8 desktop looks are good and if you need a certain app you can find it easily.

    I have gone for a more basic approach to the Metro screen.

    People seem to forget about the real Windows/PC usage stats. While you may see figures of 5% market share, and 'PC sales at a loss this quatter', etc etc, this is quite far from the truth.

    None of these surveys take into account the fact that there are MILLIONS of unrecorded, unlicensed, pirated copies of Windows out there, especially windows 8. Probably just as many copies are pirated as there are sold. This is NEVER taken into consideration.

    Secondly, in relation to PC sales, in the last 5-8 years building your own PC has become so massive and so comman that most people source components and build rather than purchase OEM systems from Dell, HP, Compaq, etc. These figures are also never taken into consideration, and I find it very irritating.

    Anyhow, back on track - Windows 8 is fantastic. Im using 8.1 preview and I love it, never have an issue with it at all. I have little use for Modern UI, I just use it as a glorified app launcher.

    EDIT: I do also have a Surface running Windows 8.1 and it is a wonderful tablet experience.
