Re: Why Win8 will succeed. Or fail.

Win 8 is [supposedly] quite OK once you install an add-on that eliminates the Metro nonsense out of the way.   If Metro was implemented as a launch-on-demand shell for Windows Phone apps, rather than the main method of interaction with PC, there would hardly be any controversy.   Heck, I don't recall anyone ever making fuss over Windows 7 gadgets, which were available, but entirely optional.   Metro might be fine for touch-based mobile devices, although it certainly isn't storming the market there either - but on laptops, and especially desktops, it's a total flop.

Come to think of it, typical iPhone and Android experience are closer to traditional desktop, albeit touch-based.
