I will say though that some of the youtube vids out there bashing Windows 8 are simply ridiculous cases of users being idiots. There's one with like nearly a million views called "Windows 8 - it's almost not terrible" or something and the two guys are basically slagging it off simply because they dont know how to use it and make everything look difficult.




You are watching too much Youtube

I have not bothered watching anything re Win8 on Youtube past your report , and won't be going back there again for Win8 , so I really couldn't care less what people are saying on there to be honest. Trust me Mate, M.S have more issues to navigate with Win8 past some Youtube rants.

I have spoken to a few local colleagues this week who are not in the DAW industry but service gaming/corporate/educational , and the feedback is enlightening to say the least and gels very closely with my overall view. In short , none of them are touching Win8 with a bargepole either, where possible. With brand notebooks where Win8 has been imposed, reports of staff being abused by customers for not having a Win7 option available for the laptop wanting to be purchased and clients walking out without purchasing anything after being informed it was Win8 only.

The simple fact that Sinofsky ( Head of Windows development ) has been sacked so soon after release of Win8 isn't exactly ringing positive bells , IMO they have realised they have a Vista size problem on their hands again. It will never gain the acceptance they hoped on Desktop, nor should it IMO.

Lets hope they wake up to their senses for whatever the next move is.
