Re: Windows 8 sales 'well below' projections, report claims

And while Jakob Nielsen gives Windows 8 the thumbs-down, Don Norman, his Design Group partner has given a very different opinion:

"Windows 8 is brilliant, and its principles have been extended to phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop machines (and larger -- for example, Surface), whether operated by gesture, mouse and keyboard, or stylus, but with appropriately changed interaction styles for the different sizes of devices and different input devices."

(note that the Surface that he refers to is the table device, not the tablet)

The market will eventually decide, but I have to say, I really don't know what all the fuss is about; I'm quite happily using Windows 8 on my desktop.
