Microsoft Windows is done, so says Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols in ZDNet:
Most people in our recent debate over the future of Windows 8 thought that the operating system could be saved. I’m sure many people in 1491 thought that the Earth was flat, too.
And, with regards to Microsoft’s highly touted Metro interface:
It looks like Microsoft is betting all its chips on the silly notion that Metro will be the one true interface for its entire PC and device line. There’s only one little problem with this idea. Sorry, but I have to say it again, look at the numbers: Metro-interface operating systems have already failed.
Stick a fork in it. It’s done.
