IMO a very good article on Uncle Billy's new WIN8 OS.<snip> Jan. 11, 2013, 3:25 p.m. ESTMicrosoft needs a Windows 8 fix nowCommentary: Problems with operating system affect entire industry BERKELEY, Calif. (MarketWatch) — Microsoft Corp. has released a new version of its Windows software. It’s a situation we’ve seen before with Windows Vista, an operating system that only its mother could love, except Windows 8 is worse.Windows 8 is a scaled-up OS for mobile devices. It’s not really comfortable running on a desktop computer, and now we learn that for the first time in five years PC sales are below the previous year’s levels, and falling. While much of this is because people are turning to tablets that do indeed benefit from an OS like Windows 8, we have to conclude that the new Windows itself has contributed to the downturn.I have written about this before, but cannot emphasize it enough: Windows 8 is not suited for the desktop. For one thing, it is designed for a touch screen, which almost nobody uses on a desktop setup. (Cont)http://www.marketwatch.com/story/microsoft-needs-a-windows-8...RichArizona
