The Windows 8 dilemma: Win 8 or wait for 9?

Win9 should be codenamed Amnesia

I can't think of another company which has so totally forgotten the basic business premises of keeping your customers happy and building on your successes.

That's probably because only their dominant market position has prevented Microsoft from going to the wall like all other companies that forget.

I remember looking forward to new versions of Windows because each one did stuff better, more easily that the one before ... Win3.11 ... Win95 ... NT/Win2000 ... WinXP ... and then Microsoft forgot who they were, where they were going and, most importantly, why.

Perhaps if they call Win9 Amnesia, it will act as a constant reminder.
