I will say though that some of the youtube vids out there bashing Windows 8 are simply ridiculous cases of users being idiots.
You are way out of line here. Computers aren't nerd toys anymore, they are consumer items and they simply have to work intuitively. Calling your own customers "idiots" is not a good way to win any friends.
Windows 8 is one step forward and a hundred steps back.
Eh? I'm not calling customers idiots, i was referring to some specific (and referenced) youtube videos of apparent "expert bloggers" demonstrating why they hate Windows 8 and they were either being pretty idiotic or deliberately trying to put people off. They were not users grappling with a new OS these were self proclaimed experts. Forgive me but i get upset about bad information. Opinion is one thing but demonstrating how rubbish something is by not knowing which buttons to press is pretty stupid in my opinion. But that's just my opinion and if you don't mind i'll miss out your 100 backward steps and just keep moving forward
You do that. The main designer of Windows 8 got sacked a few weeks after its launch. Hardly a glowing endorsement of the monstrosity they have created. I have kept an open mind about the whole thing, but it is becoming very clear that this is a huge misstep.
