This is a LONG video (around 23 minutes), but it is informative, entertaining and highlights some of the most glaring problems with Windows 8.
There’s a little NSFW language, but I think the subject matter deserves it. Thanks to my friend Marco for posting this on Google Plus!
The thing for me is this: In my experience, Windows is first and foremost a business OS with features tacked-on for home users (and done pretty well with Windows 7). This new version tho’ – – it’s scary to businesses. It’s nothing like the prior 15+ years of Windows; it would take a fair bit of training to get your staff used to it – and we all know how people respond to training and new things.
That’s my beef – what’s yours? Or do you use Windows 8 and like it?

I am the keeper of the batteries in the building. Part of my “Technical Director” duties. Boss walks into my office this morning… (context, we each have a wireless mouse with our iMacs):
Boss: My mouse batteries are dead. Do you have any rechargeable ones ready?
Me: Sure, here ya go.
Boss: Thanks. walks out
Five minutes later:
Boss: Are you sure they were charged? My mouse isn’t working right.
Me: How so?
Boss: Everything is backwards.
Boss: When I move to the left, the cursor goes right. Same thing in the other direction.
Me: Oscar-worthy straight face Turn it around.
Me: Turn it around.
Boss: What, the batteries?
Me: No, the mouse.
Boss: blinkblinkpause OOOOOOOOOHHH okay…
Ended up giving her a wired USB mouse and took her wireless mouse to use with my MacBook.
