I tested all the beta versions of 8 and told my IT community friends how absolutely stupid 8 was. I remember telling them the concept was great for tablets and phones, but not for the everyday work desktop. But the IT sheeple spit out the typical. Oh, your just resistant to change and the same old rethoric that sheeple where told to accept. Um, yeah...so not only did Windows 8 fail miserably. When Windows 8.1 came out you could now click on the start button. It brought back the metro apps. Really? How ***** dumb and blind can one be? I don't know, but you can ask him and see him dancing with his new basketball team, because he "resigned" from Microsoft after that. Yet, here they go again. Following Apple's model when clearly the Android market took over YEARS ago. In other words the people wanted a la cart. The newer generation of users are not like Apple users that want to be told to sit down, shut up, and do what we say. They want more freedom to be unique. So, this whole concept of unified OS is nice in a browser, but the whole OS across all devices. Get over it, that's the difference between and Apple, Windows, and Android user. It's kind of like New Coke. Someone had to be sitting at the exec table when they made New Coke, took a sip, thought it tasted like crap, but just smiled, and said, "Yep JP that's a good decision". FYI, Coke never regained top dog of soda after that seriously stupid move. Not mention "original Coke" was brought back. Ah-ha!
Some people will have Windows 10 forced on them, some people will give into Windows 10 out of convenience, and the majority will just hang to Windows 7 like they did XP. If they were really smart Microsoft could make a business/pro version of this. With an extra $20 charge or so, you would have the option to get the start button. People would actually pay to keep it and Microsoft could make what they want..more money. I'm telling you I don't care how many sheeples blindly jump on the bandwagon. The modern consumer will talk with their money, by not buying it. Unless, they make some sort of option. They will make more failsauce like Windows 8, Windows 8.1,.....and now Windows 10?
