Microsoft should call the update Windows 8 Start Button Reloaded Edition.

"Many enterprise customers these days have not started their migration to Windows 8 operating system"
... and they probably never will.

This looks like the story of a flawed concept in design from the start from both companies.
1/ The software and
2/ The hardware.
Both have been rejected by the public. Now trying to tinker with either the software or the hardware is not going to fix a flawed concept. The sooner both acknowledge that both the concept and design of both components software and hardware are at fault and changing one without the other is going to end in tears. Better that one or both drop the flawed concept now before the costs escalate out of all reason. I don't foresee this happening as it would mean Prima Donna's in both organisations admitting that they were wrong. Wall St., falls in share prices would send a strong message., but would fall on deaf ears.

Seemed to work out for Windows 7 after Windows Vista, which the public also "rejected" (though I fail to see how having 400 million users at one point really constitutes rejection!).

Cnet writer is an effing Intel stooge. Xbit follows suit.

At least have the decency to include Cnet's end of article note:

"Editor's note: as indicated in the story, Windows Blue is expected to offer improvements to a wide variety of devices. Not only Haswell chip-based devices. Haswell will be a major beneficiary, though, because it is expected to ship in tens of millions of PCs."

HATE this s**t.

You can always install http://forums.mydigitalli...-7-explorer-for-Windows-8 Although you need a Windows 7 disc.

There are people naive enough to buy a Haswell powered laptop and Windoze 8, so you could convince these people the earth is flat, without much effort at all.

Good to know WINTEL is alive and kicking, Cant wait for the day when AMD have the guts to go Android, if its not too late already.

Android isn't really a big player. Everyone's going Linux where the party is at. Heck, even recently it was announced that Ubuntu Kylin will be the official OS of China. AMD already performs magnificently on Linux, but the same can be said for any processor architecture.

"code-named Windows Blue" because MS is blue in the face that they have another Vista on their hands.
