Windows 8 is a matter of too many cooks in the kitchen adding their own flavor to a meal that would be better with less ingredients. I suppose that's how you secure your future at a massive company like Microsoft. If there isn't a place for you, carve a bogus niche and ride it out as long as possible.

Well, they kicked the one cook out because he wasn't good at playing nicely with others.

Otherwise I wouldn't say it was too many cooks so much as a desperate attempt to kick-start the app store every single review bashes them for not having. Misguided? Possibly. But they needed to incorporate their tablet functionality into the desktop somehow if they were going to get any kind of app store traction.

They likely didn't do it in the best possible manner. Regardless, it's everyone's desire for a tablet that's beating Windows 8 into the ground. And the whole RT confusion. Well, a lot going on, honestly.
