I'm not a Windows 8 hater.
From what I read Windows 8 does work well on mobiles and that is good.
I don't hate peanut butter but I don't want it on my lobster tail. Put the peanut butter on toast where it belongs.
I don't hate Windows 8 I just don't want it on my PC. Put Windows 8 on mobile devices like tablets and phones where it belongs.

Only a little? Actually I think some 7users who rushed into 8 didn't feel Blue at all. They felt when realizing they couldn't get 7 back on!

That was seen quite a bit with laptop users without any recovery media and wouldn't have known about one guide here unless being pointed to it. Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Goes to show "Haste makes W8ste"!

Awww.... don't you love being labeled a "Metro H8ter" instead of simply being seen as someone who prefers a desktop OS on the desktop platform?! Try Skippy on Ritz crackers instead of toast all the time!

The real problem is that somehow wires got crossed at MS and the new look for 8 was lost in the shuffle and being a lazy someone simply borrowed the RT gui and shipped 8 that way instead. One of these days when the MS Windows Library opens at some future date someone may be going through all of the original project ideas and suddenly run into what 8 should have looked like! "wat's dis?" "oh no! tis is wat was supposed to be on 8!" Someone at MS got it wrong!

It's another gambit by the MS people to force Win 8 to those of us who don't want it and to sell more Surface and SurfaceRT thing-a-ma-jigs. Just my opinion.

Heck I just installed Vista on an old XP lappy, looks fairly good (did I say that?).

Most are not interested in playing with 8 whether it's free or not, they're interested in the FIX for 8.
People are hoping 8.1 is the "fix" for 8.
The best fix would've been to keep it on tablets and phones where it belongs, or else offer a built in interface option for the desktop.

If M$ had done it right to begin with, they wouldn't need a "Fix" and name calling like "h8ters" wouldn't be necessary because everybody would've been happy.

Just like 7 was the fix for Vista, people are hoping 8.1 is the "fix" for 8.

Of course that's if M$ had been intelligent about it.
Well they "didn't" do it right to begin with! At first sight I knew 8 was off to a bad start and will earn a worse then ever rep then ME or Vista ever saw! But you have to look at where they interests are in taking a "gambit" as the blog writers quickly expressed when comparing what is being seen in the mobile market M$$$$ery is trying to capitalize on. Android is crushing Apple and Microsoft in the mobile device market | ZDNet

Now as far as Blue or Win 8.1 being the 'Fixer" for a real he8dache the latest offering has been to many those same bloggers are asking things as well. Are Microsoft 'updates' like Blue really more than service packs? | ZDNet

The 'Done it right" scenario played out with Vista when offering the choices of Classic or Aero in Vista when MS was despite some goobers of Windows growing too larger and bulky was on the right track corrected in 7 of making a more reliable OS found to be much more stable and 7 bringing in the MinWin kernel to enhance the desktop performance side of things. That was part of the 7 "SUCCESS STORY"!

Instead of "learning the lessons" of what does work M$$ery went off on a tantrum of mobile-itis sacrificing a trend of progression for "something else" that not many want! For tablet and other mobile shoppers MS has a product that competes with the Google Dooglitis and Fruit company crowds while the average desktop user is stopped inplace and shaking heads! The immediate failing seen in Win 8 was not taking into consideration supporting options for the desktop user in how they implemented Metronomics when trying to promote Metro 8pps store.

Now does that sum up some sh8rp criticisms or not? Options(sadly lacking) people is the one thing MS simply neglected to see incorporated in what they would call the latest what? version? Certainly not a "Desktop" version in the sense of the word. "well you can still point and click on large tiles!" "who the what? is this nonsense?!" is the average comeback question when most are shaking their heads!
