Re: WIN8 on new laptop=crap
It's patently obvious to anyone that has worked in the IT industry for at least a few years what the game plan is...
Microsoft has already had a helluva time getting their enterprise customers off XP. Many are just now beginning or in the middle of Win7 deployments. There was a slim (read: 0) chance that their enterprise clients were going to go with Win8 regardless of the UI shakeup.
The Office 2007 ribbon (which exposed some incredible application features to users without having to go through six menus) change was similar... Microsoft isn't run by idiots. They're well aware that Win8 won't have the numbers they do for 7.
I'm looking forward to owning a touch-sensitive Windows device with Win8 on it. I'm not rushing to buy one, nor have I purchased an upgrade for my desktop currently running Win7.
