Windows isn’t a feature, it’s a liability

Rene Ritchie:

With these latest commercials, Microsoft shows they’re no closer to learning that lesson today than they were back with Bill Gates and the Tablet PC. They’re still mired in Windows and in Office. They’re so afraid of letting go of past success that they’ll take future failure instead. They’ll refuse to compromise on anything other than making the user experience horribly, needlessly, compromised.

That pretty much says it all.

    Thought this was about the XBox One at first with that now having 1/3 Windows OS on it – great post by Rene

    It seems Microsoft has yet to experience its “iPod Mini” moment.
