I have to agree, Rick and Charlie. I usually get a negative vibe from threads like this where arguments seem to revolve around how users want to use windows the same way they've always used windows and how dare Microsoft change things so drastically.
Rick, I do think some people have taken your comment to heart though - personally I didn't see it as an attack against anyone (and I can be negative about some subjects, too). Let me address the vote imbalance for you.
Look, everyone - despite what you may think of Rick's comment he does make a very good point that Charlie's comment before it also makes well - W8 IS very much something new, something.....different. Before we dismiss this how about we see what new stuff we can really do with W8 (touch or otherwise)? Give it a chance and if it still doesn't meet your needs, pick the OS that suits them instead.
