PC makers should pressure Microsoft
Microsoft's shortsightedness will severely cut new PC sales. I have kept my Windows User Interface (UI) as close to the same as possible since Windows 95. I tried Windows 8 and I do not like the Metro UI. It simply does not fit my needs and is not as quick and easy to use without a touch screen system. Even with a touch screen, you are constantly having to switch back and forth between your mouse, your keyboard and the screen which takes time and it feels rather labor intensive after a couple of hours. So unless Microsoft changes Windows 8 so that the UI can be configured to work like I want it to and the way I am use to, I will not be buying anymore PC based computers. The only reason I have stuck with the PC based computers for nearly 20 years is because I knew how to use Windows. If I have to learn to use a completely new type of UI, I will be doing it on an Apple.
