BS troll list

You have not even tried half of the features mentioned there and the few genuine features are sandwiched between subjective trolls and pure horseshit like "keyboard shortcuts". 4/10

Windows 8 has a very minor list of improvements over Windows 7 in general. It makes the most sense as a consumer who doesn't have an operating system or is retiring an old machine since it's cheap (well for the next 30 days its cheap anyway). It doesn't make a lot of sense for other people and that explains quite a bit about its sales figures so far.

Of course many people don't mind incremental upgrades, look at iOS and Apple stuff in general. The problems with why Microsoft software isn't as desirable are pretty complicated but a lack of a compelling feature that sets Windows and Windows devices in a modern light is a big part of it. Microsoft needs to stop playing catch up.
