Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Can Microsoft Rescue Windows?

rjmarvin writes: When most people think of Microsoft, the first thing that comes to mind is Windows. The operating system has defined the company, and everything it's done, for decades. The OS has fallen into a familiar hit-and-miss cycle, from XP to Vista to Windows 7 and now Windows 8. The pattern leaves Windows 9 as the OS to right the ship, but will it http://sdt.bz/68955? The problems with Windows 8 and 8.1 are many and more between the Metro touch interface, the loss of the Start button and the general dissent between desktop and tablet users. If Satya Nadella wants Windows 9, expected in April 2015 http://winsupersite.com/window..., to be successful, Microsoft may have to pick a strategy and stick with it instead of its usual philosophy of trying to appease its broad customer base. Searching for the balance between making its touch and keyboard users happy could just serve to perpetuate the cycle, and Microsoft can't afford it.
