Windows 8 – DOA?

Steven gives five reasons why Windows 8 will be dead on arrival:

1. No one needs Windows 8 on the desktop.
2. Metro: An ugly, useless interface.
3. Where are the Windows 8 Applications?
4. Vexed Windows developers.
5. Too little, too late for the smartphone/tablet market

Add it up. The majority of Windows users have only just switched over from XP to Windows 7 in, at best, November 2011. Microsoft is now asking for its users to switch to a platform with no significant improvements, a radically different interface, and which is very likely to have few applications. The result? Window 8 will be dead on arrival.

Shame (but we’ll wait and see). I was quite looking forward to it.
