re: Windows 8 And Einstein's Definition Of Insanity
The mainframe console was a huge improvement over patch cables and voltmeters, and the GUI was a huge improvement over consoles.
New stuff is supposed to be BETTER than the old stuff. It's supposed to make you say COO-well, like Apple's new stuff!
8 is garbage. Unusable. Worthless! You think secretaries will put up with raising their arm up to a screen when a small mouse movement used to do the same thing? You think anyone wants to operate the complexities of a PC with no menus? 8 is a joke that's not funny, and nobody's laughing. It will go down for centuries as Ballmer's Last Mistake.
As for YOU:
"now we have to adapt to this. I don't see the issue aside from laziness."
...identifies you as a sleazy marketing guy in a Redmond cubicle. You think real people say that about difficult-to use, kludgy software, "You're just lazy"?
But that's the kind of thing MS says to its customers. They still think they can bully and bullish it themselves into our IT budget and suck it dry like a parasite.
You think that kind of obvious, duplicitous desperation is going to convince anyone to give you their money?
Forget it, marketing man!
Beat it! Go get a real job before Captain Ballmer drags your whole mickey mouse outfit down to the bottom with the rest of the rusty, broken junk.
