Sales of Win 8 seems to be a disaster.

Doesnt surprise me lol

Microsoft game plan of one bad OS then a good OS is going to back fire now that there is more choices.

I checked and the prices havent changed yet that I have seen here in the US.

I had Windows 8 on my system for a few months, last month I wiped it and put 7 back on :-)

BTW, Windows 9 should be better.
I'd like a new option to customize start screen scrolling from the top to the bottom.

Left-right approach is awful to me. :thinking:

In one regard, Microsoft has an extremely tough job. It wants to develop the OS more and on the other hand it has to take into account that older programs are still being used. And that "backward compatibility" creates A LOT OF headaches for MS.

This Win 8 disaster should put MS with their both feet back on the ground (again). As I start to learn more about Win 7, it's clear that even Win 7 still contains a number of bugs. These bugs are not fatal but they're sometimes annoying. And Explorer contains one nasty bug. And I liked Win XP's Explorer much, much more than Win 7's Explorer.
And when I look at the updates MS is issuing for Win 7, it seems MS is focussing on security issues, not on fixing the remaining bugs in Win 7. Seems they're too busy with other things (Win 9 ?, Win Blue ?).

MS has over 10,000 programmers working on making each version of Windows. Hell they had 125 programmers just on the start menu and task bar!!

This is why there are always so many bugs. WAY to many hands in the pot, to much chance for human error.
