Re: [WIN8] Microsoft's head Windows guy leaving IMMEDIATELY

said by Blogger:

Windows 8 based upon my reading reports of others to be the same horse as Win 7 with just a fancier saddle to try and convince users that it's really a whole new and better horse. And they will prove it to you no matter how much it costs you.

Well, I guess if you actually used it, you'd see that it has at least twice as many new features vs 7 as ML does vs Lion. For $40 instead of $30.

Obviously, if they move to calling each minor feature add a new release, they'll need to charge only $30 or so for each upgrade.

Not sure "frustration" is counted as a real feature.

You're right, in marketing-speak it falls under "improved customer experience".

Really? I've been using it every day for 8+ hours a day. I am not feeling frustration. I mean honestly, are y'all spending all day playing with your start menus?

Even my 10, 13 and 15 year olds use it with no problem. Same for my extremely non-techie wife. I personally have no issues with it and like it quite a bit.

I guess my family and I get smarter while the confused and frustrated get . . . more confused and frustrated.

Awesome. More handouts, food stamps, welfare and entitlements to come. I'm so proud.

That’s largely been my experience as well although my Wife only uses OS X now.

I’ve stated in earlier threads that I believe it’s the most experienced PC / Windows users that are the most vocal and outspoken against the Windows 8 new UI. This likely stems from being pushed out of their comfort zone of experience (knowledge).

It’s the less experienced or less classically experienced users that seem to take well to the new Windows UI as well as younger users. That and the more open minded users.

The expression “you can’t teach old dogs new tricks“ came about for a reason.
