I've noticed in the last couple of months MS puffing up the Win8 UI in various organs and media. They appear to have called in favors all over to get pieces in respected IT journals and blogs both on how much more wonderful Windows 8 is and, more telling, all the things you can do to make it more like 'classic' windows.
The change management people at MS were obviously sent on sabbatical for a year or more. No supposedly professional software vendor would ever throw something so radically different at their customers and expect to see another year ouside of chapter 11.
I've watched and listened to Mr Harris's presentation and I am still completely underwelmed.
Windows 8 is a toy, for children, it is complete rubbish and the sooner MS put their hand up and acknowledge, and more importantly fix their mistake, the sooner we can look forward to using future versions of what I consider the best business OS, with assurance.
