Microsoft's mad rush to try and combine the PC and phone/tablet OS is really misguided. I don't know if they think that they can leverage the desktop again, the way they did with IE, but people aren't going to switch to a Windows 8 phone/tablet just because they have Windows on the desktop. And that's assuming people having Windows 8 on the desktop. There's a good reason that Vista uptake was so low, and that's because there was no desire to upgrade. Once you've got a good working system, making fundamental changes to it is the last think you want to do.

I guess from their point of view, they've backed themselves into a corner of coming obsolescence, so they have to gamble to try and break into other markets, but I can't see this paying off for them.
W8 is going to be worse than Windows ME, Vista, etc.
