Microsoft has committed total all-out suicide. Windows 8 makes Vista look like an undebatable success. It took me 15 minutes to figure out how to shut this junk off. The toolbars are STILL not customizable and now they're just all over the place in a different way. Can't kill off Metro. Read on a tech news site that they're actually going out of their way to manually remove any ability to reimplement the start menu by any one. A multi-billion dollar corporation going ga-ga over an iPad and destroying their main product is NOT how to run a business! In fact that is EXACTLY how to destroy their own business!
Any one with an once of sense should go check out React OS, binary compatible with Windows with the familiar GUI of XP. It's still in Alpha but damn it is FAST! Still a little ways to go though at this point the Microsoft Titanic has taken on too much water, I'm surprised the lights are still on.
