I see a train wreck about to happen. Normally, that would be a bad thing but this train wreck will be a joyful event for me. M$’s “8” looks to be the biggest train wreck since Vista (18% at its peak, dead for a monopoly).
- Here’s what a fan of M$ wrote recently:“It doesn’t make computers easier to navigate and understand, it makes them more difficult, paradoxically by making the interface so brain-dead simple that it can’t do anything someone with a brain might actually want. Want to close an application without using Alt-F4? Forget it. Want the menus and settings intelligently organized? No chance. Want to just display two windows on the screen at the same time? Good luck with that.”
- SJVN says it’s DOA and another supporter says people should stay away from “8”‘s Metro UI for a couple of years as folks usually do for M$’s usual release:
