Why won't they sort it out?
Win8's been out - what - 18 months... a bit more? Surely MS must know why people are rejecting it (hell, even my dog knows), and I just don't get why they refuse to respond and put a proper shell around the Win8 kernel. I get why they may have hung in there - all part of a larger strategy etc. But hello? Smell the coffee. The strategy is bollocks and clearly isn't working (my dog knows that too).
Surely it would only take them a couple of weeks tops to rip the TIFKAM (or whatever they're calling it this month) crap out of Win8 and put a proper desktop interface on there - in fact I'd be stunned if there weren't internal versions of such already in existence. I just don't get why, after such a woeful take-up and such dreadful figures, they would not say "enough is enough" and sort it out.
I'm not just MS-bashing, I'm genuinely flummoxed by their lack of action when it's patently obvious what the problem is. They're welcome to consult my dog if they still don't get it.
