Windows 8 -- Doesn't Get It -- Epic Fail Edition

Facebook interrupts your feed to stick in ads these days. There was a howler from Microsoft. It didn't actually say Windows 8, no doubt because they're embarrassed by it, but they did show an XP desktop and claimed you could keep it all, followed by the hashtag #GoodbyeXP.

As I went to comment, I didn't see a single atta-boy, way to go, Microsoft. No, it was all give me my XP.

Epic. Fail.

With a new Windows PC, keep the Desktop you love and run the Office you know. ‪#‎GoodbyeXP‬


  • Philip Edward Kaldon So, just like Windows XP I can install Office 95 and use Norton Utilities and Special Edition 4.5 in a cmd.exe MS-DOS box and run WordStar 3.30 in the DOS box? I Don't Think So. Microsoft -- you keep forgetting that it's MY machine and I use it to do WORK. You keep putting out crap like Me, Vista and 8 which keep breaking things. You don't get it. Dr. Phil


I keep telling my students I need fifteen minutes in a dead end alley with Bill Gates or his designated Prince, and with an aluminum baseball bat I'll 'splain a few things to them.
