It’s good to have goals.

  • Funny. I develop software for a living. A coworker and I decided to install Windows 8 and see how our Windows app ran on it (the client using our software has no plans to upgrade, so this was purely for our curiosity). I didn’t check to see how it went for my coworker, but I never even got to the installer for our app, since I managed to crash Windows 8 twice, forcing a reboot both times. I gave up at that point.

  • Are the article’s European adoption rates any different from the sales of new Windows PCs there?

  • Seeing as how Windows 7 is not significantly different from Windows for the last 20 years, I’d like to know who still finds Windows 7 that frustrating.

    …aside from me.
