This is an interesting read
Microsoft in general and the Windows group in particular have gone through enormous changes within the past year. All the key Windows 8 players are out. Most of us can only speculate on the reasons for the massive turnover, but one point remains clear: under new management, Windows is in for changes.

Nice read. Win8 wasnt the worst OS ever made. That title still belongs to Windows ME, followed closely by Windows Vista before SP1. Win8 has its issues and got such a bad rap coming out the gate most people wont even give it an honest try before saying it is junk or replacing it. I use WIn8 everyday on my work PC and for the most part it acts like Win7 until you go into Metro. Then it is different. I wish somethings were easier to locate and there wasnt two control panels.(Desktop and Metro) All and all if I had to score it from 1-10 I would give it a 6. 8.1 gets a score of 7 due to it now being easier to boot to desktop and giving me back In browser netflix instead of the terrible metro app version.
Now that Balmer is gone I am praying MS and Windows can get back on track. Focus on what the customer needs instead of force feeding them an your idea of what they need. Windows Phone, Windows RT and Windows 8 should have all been using the same API from the start. It would have almost guaranteed the ecosystem success and developer support. Fingers crossed for a smarter MS.

I think that it was a case of them not listening to their customer base. (after soliciting comments too!) The vast majority
This was viewed as a "high and mighty" attitude by people who decided to speak with their wallets from then on. Win-8's slow sales out of the gate proves that people were not happy.
(even if the OS was not so bad besides that crappy Metro interface)
This was all right after they had released Win-7 to resounding success. BTW: Offering Win-7 for free, for a whole year, was a great idea after Vista sucked so bad. (until SP-1 anyways)
