Ah, Microsft is a great company.
They have a vision and a strategy - let's concentrate on mobile, where their market share is 2% and they don't make any money at all, and the field is not saturated at all with Apple and Google pushing hard. In the meantime let's screw up the desktop - where MS OS is dominant and where they make all their money. Let's see how many people we can make NOT buy Windows. Pure genius.

Yes, PC sales are down but PCs are not going anywhere - if you want to do serious work you still need a PC.

In the meantime people have to install 3rd party extensions to get a Start Menu - and apparently not much different in Windows 9 (with that lame excuse for a start menu). Nobody else on the planet except Microsoft can believe that the same UI would work great on a phone and a desktop PC

I'll stick with Windows 7. Probably the greatest OS to date.

Sounds good to me.

I can't believe these guys. They are constantly creating upgrades that people DON'T want to upgrade to.

While I completely hate macs, Apple's hard edge design is much better as it doesn't utilize a border and the highlighted window drops a subtle shadow on the other windows and desktop beneath it.
