quote: Instead of complaining on forums, complain to Microsoft:
quote: And you few, you loudmouthed apologist minority, have been telling US to shut up. You've been so categorically and fundamentally wrong about Windows 8, that you should be disqualified from discussing computer software entirely!
quote: I haven't seen the metro interface on this machine in ages.
quote: because you're not trying it.
quote: What I can potentially see as being the biggest advantage for 8 in general, is the ability to flip between desktop and metro.
quote: If I were using a tablet without peripherals, metro is great.
quote: PC sales aren't declining because of Windows 8.
quote: Reclaimer truly believes Windows 8 is the death of the PC.
quote: The war was really about State power vs. Federal power. Seeing the shape your country is in now, I find it hard to believe that you are better off for having the North win.

quote: Yeah lets pretend it's not a huge factor. Every analyst out there, people who do this for a living, is blaming Windows 8. But hey, I'll just take your word.
quote: There's not a single way to prove either side of the argument.
quote: By a huge majority, the early tester and release candidate feedback to Microsoft about Windows 8 was negative. Overwhelmingly. Nearly nobody thought Windows 8 was ready for the desktop as-is.
quote: Windows 8 has cost Microsoft their CEO, their market-share, their respect. It's damaged the ENTIRE PC industry. And you think people should shut up??
quote: I am so glad we have Android and iOS now.
quote: If there's one thing that can be said about Windows 8, it's that it can run your old Win32 and Win64 applications.
quote: Only in reclaimer77 la-la land is 1.7 million since release for Chromebooks "thriving".
quote: People who have lots of Windows software that they don't want to replace with half-baked web-apps, for one.
quote: Funny, Windows NT sucks because it doesn't have legacy Win32 support, but somehow Windows 8 sucks because no one needs Win32 support. You are delusional.
quote: but I am sure you've stated that WINdows RT sucks because it doesn't run Win32 apps
quote: It sold like hotcakes, then people realised that Linux was not Windows and their old stuff didn't work.
quote: I predict the same will happen again.
quote: most people defending them are knee-jerk MS haters
quote: For millions of people, Android and iOS have been a solid computing alternative to Windows.
quote: Reclaimer's point was that no one needs Win32 or Win64 on mobile.
quote: Anyone who thinks the current versions of Android and iOS, and the devices they run on, are solid alternatives to any desktop OS is out of his or her mind.

quote: He totally runs off the rails over comments others didn't make, and points they weren't trying to make,
quote: Reclaimer you should be able to relate, considering you've been accused numerous times of being an apologetic Android/Google fanboy defending their every move. It is clear that you like Google and their products. But sometimes you are also accused to the same simply when stating facts, so maybe you can see the situation I'm always put in by some people?
quote: But you know what, this is silly. Obviously I'm getting a little frustrated with you and Reclaimer this particular day. I will apologize for my behavior. Let's try to have a more civilized debate instead of arguing back and forth, as time after time it has proven to get none of us anywhere except upset with one another.
quote: You need a keyboard and mouse, and not the virtual kind or the one with chiclet-sized keys.
quote: It has taken Windows 8 15 months to hit the 200 million licenses sold mark; Windows 7 hit the 240 million mark in just 12 months
quote: There have always been multiple competitors to MS products, but the market had chosen MS.
