More MS Propaganda
This sounds like more Microsoft marketing bullshit to me.
Sorry, but I've heard this sort of American sales crap too many times already. Surely they must have picked up by now that it isn't the Operating System that people hate, it's the bogus company that sells broken stuff that the consumer has to fix.
As a daily user of the PC, I have to state categoricaly, there is nothing interesting or exciting about having to go looking for the application menus that the egg heads have just moved to somewhere else, or marketing types have had removed altogether.
Mind you, Ubuntu Linux is't a great deal better in this, it simply costs me ONLY the earning curve, which is enough, when you just want to do some work.
There is no new hardware required, no new office software required.
Hey ho, I've saved a packet already.
I still need to provide the cost for maintenance, whatever the OS.
So, if folks really like to be on the leading edge, good, I'll pick up the pieces when their machines fail.
