Gotta sell those machines....will be interesting to see how retail handles the Win8 complaints.
Just like Vista, the great majority of folks buying PCs at the big box stores won't know the difference and so FS, BB, Staples, etc... will sell nothing but win8 machines. Unfortunately, this time around, the interface is not intuitive on a desktop and (IMO) the frustration this will cause amongst those who don't know to check online (if they could find a way to access the i'net... :) ) for tips / techniques stands a good chance of doing real damage to the desktop PC market.
