Another Microsoft FANBOY.
As if any of us are or really care one way or the other.
There are reasons for change and if the reason something is changed is logical it's a good change and there are then there are times that Change is Introduced for the sake of change to try to con some people that because this looks different it's better when it's just different and no better or worse that what it replaced.
While 8 is an improvement of 7 which was an improvement of Vista which was an improvement of XP and so on and so on back till Windows started, Honestly it's not that much of an Improvement that would justify throwing away all your old stuff and replacing it with 8 Loaded hardware just because it's new.
With Microsoft going to the point of introducing a new OS version every 12 months or so as they have said that will be doing shortly, and to be perfectly honest the Vista Development 10 year Cycle is nearly at it's end with 8 SP1 being the last part of the development cycle we are going to see changes far more often from Redmond.
I however can not help but wonder if this is a Good or Bad thing that is going to do benefit or harm to M$. What's good for a domestic situation isn't necessarily good for business. Changing the tail lights of a car and calling it a new model doesn't hurt anything but changing how people use the same device that they have used for years and slow them down, not to mention making them frustrated is a different kettle of fish. Personally I don't ever want to see another system introduced to the Business End of a Double Barrel Shotgun because the person using it got frustrated.
Also Microsoft has shown that it is now much more bureaucratic than it was previously and is now much slower to introduce change so personally I can see lots of unimportant detail changes and very little in the way of Product Improvement Changes occurring.
No matter what anyone says Microsoft is now the IBM of the PC World. Look how long it took them to move to a 64 Bit OS from the 32 Bit and how long it took them to have a working 32 Bit Windows available to replace the 16 Bit one when the 32 bit Hardware started to become available.
