A tale of two execs: Microsoft's Sinofsky and Apple's Forstall

CNET : Both were growing in influence, with a reputation for being difficult. Now, one is the architect of Microsoft's comeback attempt in consumer markets and the other is being forced out of Apple. What happened? (Apple, Hi-tech, Industry, IT, Microsoft, Web)

You know what i love about all the windows 8 haters is they use the same line. Its too different to windows 7 and people wont buy it because its different.

Hang on a minute is the ios and android not completely different to windows?

Or looking at the xbox dash and how its changed over the years are people complaining that its different or when some one goes from a sony android phone to a samsung or from a iphone to a android device?

People will buy things that are advised well to them and work. Windows 8 windows phone 8 and the new xbox dash all work very well and are easy to pickup. The hard bit for microsoft is now to push the devices to the masses and i think in 3 years time you will see apple will of lost alot of its tablet market to Android and windows 8 and i see windows phone 8 also pushing ios and android but wont out sell them.

Talking about Windows 8 haters. From our history we can see that everybody refuse to accept the change in any field whether it be in any invention or any discovery. It's become a human psychology to protest against the new thing. But as the time passes they will accept it slowly and gradually.
