The thing is that if they think this will be a successful consumer desktop they are sadly mistaken. They thought there was backlash from Vista? Oi.

You shouldn't need to install aftermarket software for the most part or pay a premium for a "upgraded" OS like Pro or Enterprise to get what you want.

There was enough changes going from XP to Vista in the UI to warrant frustration from new users to veteran users and the switch in Windows 8 will create the same frustration.
