Works great for me. What was his excuse before windows 8?
I find it hard to take criticism of a market from somebody whose company focus is on an immediately competing market. Of course a Samsung exec is going to beat the drums about the demise of the PC when they are so heavily invested in the mobile market.
I agree with the exec due to windows 8 sucking so bad!
Nick you are a idiot.
and i agree with him
Works great for me, Everything 7 could do and then some. RT is a bit lackluster IMO but seems way more useful than an iPad for most a they just want to use Office/Web. More-so Id say PC sales are in decline because I can happily run a 4 year old quad-core or dual-core and 2-4GB of RAM with windows 8.. heck I even had the Preview going on a ~10yr old 2Ghz Single core AMD OC'd to 2.4 with 1GB of RAM and it was snappy.
Windows 8 is crap.
People don't usually buy a new PC for the OS. They buy a new PC because their hardware has gotten crusty and a new OS is for *some* of those people an opportune time to make the upgrade. The OS is more a secondary consideration. The state of one's PC hardware is much more important.
Win-8 sells because it's already on new PCs.
Otherwise it would be a huge failure.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I couldn't agree more, realneil. Even Vista had sales numbers other OS's envy, but only because you couldn't avoid it.
My daughter's new computer came with Windows 8, and after fighting with it to do simple stuff like add a printer and wifi (both of which 'just worked' when booted from the Linux partition), I have no desire to ever touch it again. Windows 7 is soooo much better from a workflow perspective, in my opinion. At work, we're skipping Win8 on our 14,000 desktops, because it's a joke from a business perspective.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I've met many people who at first glance didn't understand how to use the GUI for windows 8 for anything at all. even going as far as being confused about metro installed apps vs desktop apps. Don't blame the OS, blame the ignorant user base as far as I can see. I installed windows 8 a few months ago and I haven't had a single issue other than some in the compatibility range with pre-vista software.
Haters be hating.....
Love windows 8, it runs well, it runs fast I like the way it looks. I am happy with it. Samsung playing the blame game, pfft... hardware has been pretty good the last few years so people keep their pc's for longer. Tablets and Phones are replacements for some people.
"Phones and Tablets are COOL" People can see phones and tablets that's why they are will to play $800-$1000 for an smart phone, and $500-$1000 for a tablet... it is a very image based society now. Not saying that's the only reason but I just found it funny how people are happy to buy a phone for $1000 but are not really willing to play that for a PC anymore.
