I’m calling it now. First Windows ME, then Vista, next 8. All failures, or soon to be.
There’s nothing new in Windows 8 that warrants replacing Windows 7 so soon but there’s enough changed on the surface to piss people off. People don’t like having changes forced upon them (see also: Facebook). The only people that will be getting Windows 8 will be people who got it pre-installed and had no choice, and I don’t see any businesses upgrading to Windows 8 whatsoever.
