What bothers me is that MS is so arrogant that it thinks it can demand that the world wide work force using windows based products should be "re-trained" with it's miserable (non-helpful) user interface with a loss of millions, possibly billions, of man hours of productivity. ad they not been so arrogant they would have offered business/users an option of "moving forward" with their new interface or sticking with what they know. In the past they offered a choice, this time they said do it our way. It's no wonder that Android will dominate the tablet world; developers have to choose what eco-system they want to work with, Apple, Android or Windows; for years it was a no-brianer. But not so any more, given limited resources, the choice won't be all of the above and with MS raising prices on just about everything businesses will be pressuring their developers to use the next "MS forced re-development cycle" (another arrogant money grab by MS) to move to Android where costs are lower and there is more flexibility (and it getting better not worse).
Either the MS arrogance will end (with it's slow death caused by business application not being written for it's platform) or MS will make the necessary moves to improve productivity (not reduce it); another Vista, no, now there are more immediately relevant choices, MS has far less time to make this right, with a choice of interfaces and an apology (Win 8.1XP?)
