    expensive tools for power business users. Not a device for the average consumer. Microsoft missed the mark. Android and ios devices are tablets for everyday people.

    Windows 8 and the new XBox are doomed to fail! Microsoft is just like any other large company, making changes that are convenient for them but not for the users.

    Windows 8 and the new XBox are doomed to fail!

    Spoken a true Apple fan boy, although fan pops would be more apt judging by your avatar. I've bee using Windows 8 now for four months and the only issue I initially had was that the familiar Start button was gone. I downloaded and installed it as an add-on the second week of use and have had smooth sailing since. I've also read that the Start button is now on any new versions of Windows 8 so problem solved as far as I'm concerned. No complaints from on Windows 8 so I just don't see it being doomed to fail like you say.

    What don't you like about it? And most importantly, which Acer laptop do you have?

    I got a 32Gb nexus 7 with a 56mbps wifi connection for 3880/month and it does all that my old mac and windows did for a fraction of the price. Cost me 25,000yen.

    Desktops are dying except for certain tasks.

    As are cell-phones, I can do a call and video chat for free globally.

    Same to you that I asked Elbuda Mexicano; what "sucks" about Windows 8? I'm of course assuming that you've actually used it (more than on a display model at a store) and if you have then you'd have some specific gripes about the OS...

    I've been a long time Windows user and loathed Apple just like you. Until I found out that with Macs you can actually get your job done, unlike with Windows. Ok I still use Windows for my job but I use Windows 7 as I see no need to upgrade to 8 since my desktop PC is not a touch tablet. I think win 8 sales figures speak for themselves about how fail win 8 is.
