Windows 7: Why Windows Blue heralds the death of the desktop

Not everyone has a smart phone. I don't and I do not own a tablet and never will. It is correct to say that more and more people access the net with portable devices. That being said MS should be looking out for ALL of their customers not just those that use tablets and smart phones. Their attitude may come back and bite them where it hurts.

if this is really going to happen, I'm really lost at words.

I really don't know what to say. I feel so... uh. I don't know how to say. :S
after thorough reading of previous opinions, I couldn't say less or more on agreeing them. I just can't imagine a desktop PC with those tiles thingy around my desktop.

definitely a no.

Microsoft wants a big part of the mobile market. I don't blame them at all. I think is great they make a operating system to help them do just that. I think we all understand that the Toymobile market is billions of dollars and growing. The competition in the Toymobile market is tough. I wish Microsoft well in the new and growing market.

NOW why does Microsoft have to treat a market of hundreds of million PC users they have 90% plus market coverage like something the cat dragged in the door?

I would venture to say that millions and millions of PC users also have Tablets and Cell Phones and other Toymobiles. I don't believe the users of such Toymobiles will have a problem with Windows 8 (TM) Edition on those kind of products. (TM=Toymobile)

I would also venture to say that people would have no problem using a PC with a true PC operating system like Windows 7 or a Windows 8(PC) Edition.

I do not in any way understand why Microsoft thinks they have to abandon one market in order to join another market. That to me is what they are doing when they made a Toymobile operating system for use on a PC.

Well, I am on a fixed income and I cannot afford a tablet or a smart phone. I am using a perfectly good PC with Windows 7 on it and I plane on using it for a long long time.

Gary I fully understand your position. I don't have any Toymobiles. I do wish goodwill to those who want those things.

I like you have chose PC. Some choose Toymobiles and then again their are some people that choose PC's and Toymobiles.
Just give a good choice what operating system to put on what piece of hardware.
To me that choice can and should be given from Microsoft to it customers. We have the desire and capability of making such a choice.
I'm not sure if the rulers of the E.U. will understand this free choice thing.

I do not concern myself with what the EU or any other Combined group of countries do. The last I heard the EU was close to a collapse.

They've even stripped down the BSOD in Windows 8 to a sad face with Stop Code listed. Here's some comparisons from Google:

The Windows 8 photo may not be exactly a BSOD, but that what it looks like, and why did Microsoft have to create child-friendly BSOD for?

It is called the dumbing down of MS users. The way I see it Windows 8 and Blue are going to just driver users to Linux.

Very much doubt that unless all the software you need can run with a variant of Linux. I need the Adobe stuff so that's not really an option. But, and this is what M$ seems unable to appreciate, my Windows 7 rig (along with several million other users) is running just fine. Not interested in a few seconds faster boot time although that wasn't my experience when I was 'testing' W8 and/or cloud computing and/or downloading paid for apps. So I'll just stay as I am and revisit when M$ wakes up.
