Microsoft Is In Serious Danger Of Flying Straight Into A Mountain With Windows 8

Alarm bells must be ringing in Microsoft’s Redmond headquarters.

Microsoft is close to releasing Windows 8 and it’s shaping up to be another “Vista”. Only this time the repercussions could be much worse. The critics who have been using Windows 8 are extremely negative on the new look and feel of the operating system:

At Slate, Farhad Manjoo writes, “In my time with Windows 8, I’ve felt almost totally at sea—confused, paralyzed, angry, and ultimately resigned to the pain of having to alter the way I do most of my work.”

At Marketwatch, John Dvorak says, “Windows 8 looks to me to be an unmitigated disaster that could decidedly hurt the company and its future … The real problem is that it is both unusable and annoying.”

Our own analyst, and long time Microsoft observer Matt Rosoff said, “I still think it’s needlessly confusing and hard to use … I’ve spoken to other people who have been testing Windows 8 for months. A lot of them found it puzzling like I did, and it’s getting worse, not better, with each beta update.”

Rosoff doesn’t think it’s going to be a disaster for Microsoft. He thinks Microsoft will be safe because it has so many other lines of business that are strong.
