A lot of my friends in the technology industry. Really, the number one complaint I hear is "this means we'll have to train everyone because of the drastic differences. I do NOT have the time to do this." If you're running a small operation, it may or not be that bad. But when you have a building full of average joe employees who are using a new UI, it's going to be time consuming. They are so used to a certain way of doing things, and so used to where things are. We can already look at the average joe consumer and see their frustrations...the last thing they want is to have to learn a new way of doing things.m4a4 said:

What MS needs to do is probably very different to what MS should do if they were acting in users' best interests. Continuing support in the form of updates/service packs would be. Pulling the plug is not.Gamesinner said:MS needs to terminate Windows Vista. What a crappy OS.
This is the major headache that the average home user, and MS marketing people, don't seem to take into consideration. It's quite odd because a large proportion of most legal copies of windows are on OEM machines shipped out to corporate users...matrix86 said:A lot of my friends in the technology industry.

The same thing is happening with Windows 8. The same thing happened with Vista (as you noted), and the same thing happened with XP. Unfortunately, just as XP was coming out, this board changed to the current form from a different one (Jawbreaker) and the old posts weren't carried over. But you can go to other old boards and see all the outrage at XP when it came out (Fisher Price interface for one).vista was fine, people just hopped on the hater bandwagon that started before it even got released and people didn't even try to give it a chance. almost every complaint i ever heard in person was something that wasn't even real, they just had to do something slightly different from XP and refused to do it.
Look at my first post, second paragraph. I list pros there. (it seems SNGX1275 helped answer this one. And with links )fimbles said:
m4a4, please make a list of those pros.
Well that explains it, because I still over 10 years since it's launch dislike it's interface and actually still prefer Win2K over XP if it weren't for planned obsolescence....and see all the outrage at XP when it came out (Fisher Price interface for one).
