  1. 1. Have a system compatibility app that doesn’t require you to d/l the entire OS to use- many, many users are discovering that the PC that easily ran Win7 and the Consumer Preview versions of Win 8 cannot install the RTM version (go figure)

    2. put all the versions and optional software on the retail DVD to make it worthwhile buying (not everyone has access to reliable broadband yet)

    3. allow proper support for dual-booting so that it is not necessary to lose the previous OS (since many programs that run on Win XP, Vista and Win 7 will not on Win 8 including device drivers)

    4. Fix the bug that prevents the user from saving files, settings and documents when upgrading from the Consumer Preview version

  2. I want to see Windows 8 be gone! Didn’t they even take a tiny look at Gnome 2 or Unity running on Linux to see that you can turn a desktop computer into a cell phone without destroying ALL of its capabilities? When companies cease regarding meeting customer needs as their prime directive they settle down to take the eternal celestial dirt nap.

  3. I'd like them to go back to XP. At least it WORKS, is user friendly, and drivers for old hardware work with it. The same can not be said of 7 or 8. And the expense of upgrading to 7 is enormous. It's not just the overpriced cost of the OS, but it's also the upgraded hardware, the training, the IT time spent ironing the bugs out…ect.
    A large corp will have to spend millions to upgrade. And Microsoft wonders why corporations all over the globe resisted switching? Just basic economics. Very few can afford to waste that much money just to accomplish the exact same tasks. That's why Vista failed…and that's why 7 is failing too. It just costs too much.
