There is nothing wrong with Windows until it doesn't do what you want it to. Its an old song, been a chart topper for years. I remember people complaining about Microsoft when Windows was a concept. Windows never does enough for techies, but somehow it continues to survive and control the market. May stay that way too as long as developers are more focused on web and smart phone aps than the OS. I think if a company like Google launched an Apple like company that offered a good PC OS it wouldn't take much for users to jump the MS ship. But like most developers, Google would probably get raked over the coals, chewed up and spit out for every little design flaw causing a reputation vortex that they likely would never return from. May be that is why no one (with clout) has challenged MS in the PC OS market. Well IBM did at first, but look what happened to them... Or is the real reason because the PC market has a limited life Windows 8 proves it?
