Aparently, Windows 8 is getting too much critisism from techies, users and bloggers who have critised the new metro-styled OS and the removal of the start button from the screen, which had the traditional users of Windows a little unhappy. Finally we have had a microsoft official claiming the critism is too harsh. Frank X. Shaw, corporate vice president of corporate communications at Microsoft, wrote on The Official Microsoft Blog on Friday,
” In this world where everyone is a publisher, there is a trend to
the extreme — where those who want to stand out opt for sensationalism and hyperbole over nuanced analysis. In this world where page views are currency, heat is often more valued than light. Stark black-
and-white caricatures are sometimes more valued than shades-of-gray reality. So let’s pause for a moment
and consider the center. In the center, selling 100 million copies of a product is a good thing. In the center, listening to feedback and improving a product is a good thing.”
This leaves microsoft users wondering whether microsoft will make major changes to its rumoured windows 8.1 upgrade. Remember microsoft claims the feedback on Windows 8 has been helpful. Lets hope it does and besides the user interface changes the price should change for the cheaper.
