That said, .NET is a pretty big and widely adopted development platform.
That said, Linux is way more widely adopted and is in practically every device on the planet except Windows devices.
Ever see a toaster with a blue screen of death? Nope. That's Linux :)
The real issue for me is I'm a multi-screen user and the Win 8 setup on 2 monitors for a demo was horrendous. It looked like all the strides they made forward in Win 7 were tossed out the Windows. Maybe I need to spend more time evaluating it, but I wasn't pleased with the experience.
Plus, with Apple and Android touch screen devices I could just touch it and use it, very intuitive. Not so much with Win 8, had to figure out what the hell to do.
It will be ironic if MS does all this Win 8 stuff just to woo corporate America and they pass on the upgrade cycle which I can easily see happening since Win 7 is rock solid.
