No one smart enough left to put up a proper video that you can actually view.

I'm not sure whether it is meant to make me upgrade to Windows 8 or make me want to stay with Windows 7.  I think it is the latter.

Or upgrade to FreeDOS.

Because spastic, hipper-than-thou editing, zero real information, and music that sounds like an ad studio's attempt to mash up every single genre that's "popular with the Kids These Days" into one song is totally a winning formula. And bonus points for the continued pathetic "hey, maybe this will get people to use Silverlight!" attempts.

You know what's really sad? The infamous Windows 386 Sexless Porno was more informative about the actual product, better-directed, and more entertaining than this mess.

I am waiting to see how they (Microsoft) are going to sell this crap to corporate users. Either as a Windows Vista II or Windows ME replacement or a way to lose even more productivity from staff who prefer to spend their whole working day on social networks.

The only decent OS Microsoft has produced is Windows XP. It was easy to customize and allowed users to get on with the job of using their PC without crap such as Aero interface and with dumb buttons which are only useful for those with a touch screen.

On a final note - Am I the only one who believes that Windows 8 is like MS BOB? A dumb interface for idiots who don't deserve to own a computer.

Idea. Why don't they use a games console style GUI such as the one on the Xbox instead of trying to turn Windows into a smart phone?

That's the big question with this whole thing. Microsoft have insisted "oh, don't worry about it, we've got that covered, we're just not going to say how," but I rather doubt it - if they had something to allay business-user concerns, why would they not be letting it out, if they plan to launch this thing this fall? I honestly kind of suspect Windows 8 is going to make Vista look like a success...

I know of plenty of businesses that haven't even upgraded to Vista or 7 yet; I wonder how many skipped versions it will take before Microsoft gets the hint that people really just want the XP interface back, on top of better underlying OS versions?

No, sir, you are not. Not in the least.

Either way they'd be forcing an inapplicable UI paradigm onto desktop and laptop computers for no good reason...

Because Windows Phone has been able to grab a whopping 0.8% of the smart phone market?

What i don't understand is how can they be so stupid? Surely they are aware of how unpopular it is  and people already deciding it is a flop even before it has come out. Why aren't they listening?  :confused:

There's nothing wrong with the video, it's just that folks here aren't the target audience.
