With Windows Blue, Microsoft May (Finally) Do The Right Thing

ZDNet: Windows Blue, from all leaks and tips received, is not a do-over. (If it were, it would take Microsoft a lot longer than nine or ten months to deliver it.) And ignoring customer confusion isn't a virtue; it's stupidity.

This armchair pundit finds it refreshing to hear Windows honchos admit that Windows 8 isn't selling as well as they hoped and that they want to make its successor more comfortable, familiar and usable for the Windows installed base.

The story is too old to be commented.

I like Metro and prefer 8 to 7, but I think that there is much that can be done to help with users' confusion.

I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to shut down the computer the first time I used it.
Moving a mouse to a particular corner of the screen isn't obvious at all without onscreen help.

Once you learn the basic gestures, I really like the experience.
