NOT, windows 8 sucks
I totally disagree. It still needs work but it's a good platform to build on for next evolution of the desktop and mobile device interface.

That’s pretty presumptuous; we’re actually taking our 110 XP machines and turning them into dumb terminals so we can run VM ware with Win 7 desktops. Win 8.1 may help gain some adoption, but most companies I know are sticking with the Windows 7 “downgrade” for the foreseeable future. I don’t believe the death of XP is going to make a huge impact on pushing more companies into Win 8.
people said windows xp sucked. time to move on. if people can deal with the crappy problems iphones give them, then they can deal with windows 8. get used to it.
Is this guy high?
Almost every business machine I've seen in my 15 years of tech work is massively behind running software from 10 years ago. Even nowdays I see business machines with Win7 32 bit because some or another piece of junk speciality software that was written in ms-dos doesnt work on the X64 version.
Win8 is also about as business orientated as a bowl of candy! The full screen, one at a time, nature of the new "apps" is downright RETARDED. the multi monitor support only really does anything in classic desktop mode and is 200% useless with the new apps.
So knowing all that clearly the only way you can run a productive office machine is on the classic desktop, now where is the start menu? Constantly minimize to desktop to click icons? Jump over to the annoying metro screen that makes a 5year old laugh to launch a program?
The biggest problem MS has with Win8 right now is that its not sold in two versions.
It should be "Win8 pre-teen -touch edition" and "Win8 bog boy -mouse and desktop edition with NO APPS and NO METRO"
I totally agree with the need for a real business version of Win8. I work for a goliath international shipping company. We have millions of PCs and we are certainly phasing out the XP machines wherever posible but they are being replaced with Win7. The IT guys want nothing to do with Win8 in it's current state.
My question is how the f do you uninstall a metro app and the menus blow too. I just built my boss mom a new rig and put windows 8 and had such a *** working it i just loaded classic shell
Windows 8 is beautiful, i honestly love the flat metro design, on my new comp i just built it really upgraded my experience with windows. i understand that there is a learning curve but i haven't found a program that doesnt work just as good or better on widows 8
Idiots who want windows 7 back are going to ruin windows 8 microsoft will start adding old features back in instead of adding new ones.
Don't be that guy.
