ok, so you don't find it the least bit ridiculous that no defense of windows 8 is possible without literally being accused of receiving a paycheck from microsoft?

I find it equally amusing that the slightest complaint isn't possible without being accused of saying THE SKY IS FALLING BECUZ OF START BUTAN. No, the complaints were not addressed in any manner, they range from lack of innovation to concerns about store, advertisements in the default operating system apps and so on. Trying to pass it off as its better for the little people is just amusing and a complete straw man, as if they were banging down Microsofts doors begging for this stuff in the first place. As for what is and isn't intuitive, that's subjective and all I can say is that we'll see. Poor discoverability certainly won't help with public perception here and it's one of the largest complaints leveled at Windows 8.

the reaction from this extremely large population that i've personally seen thus far has been quite positive

What sheer luck that you personally observed this and it just happens to coincide with your own opinion on the matter. I've personally observed the complete opposite, I guess we're at a stand still now.

The complaints about Windows XP were different, as XP was a much larger overall shift and had many issues at release ranging from poor driver support and app compatibility problems.
