As I've said before, if Win8's UI is really that good, users would naturally transition to it without any "forcing" on MS' part.


First I believe Win 8 Pro is a great OS minus the Metro interface. I have a Surface Pro with it and have it on our dual boot entertainment PC with Win 7 Ultimate.

Your point regarding the natural acceptance is correct. If the interface was as good as MS believes there would be no problem. I wonder how long it will take the decision makers at MS to overcome their egos and adapt. Maybe Win 8 Blue is the chance.

Meanwhile, a daughter is buying my girlfriend a new laptop. She asked my advice and I said my GF would not be happy learning a new interface and she should buy a laptop with Win 7.
