Do people research which toaster to buy? Nope. They expect it to make toast. Same with microwaves/fridges/TVs. Hell few even research which phone to buy. Most people consider a computer to just be another appliance, they expect it to work just like the generation before it worked. IE Its MS fault as they are the ones who purposely gave it the Windows monikor. Anyone with an ounce of sense could have called this one looong before it was RTM'ed let alone SOLD at retail. All they had to do was give it a dif name....and then peeps would not blindly assume it was like the Windows on their computers. Instead MS wanted to cash in on the Windows brand name recognition...and now are paying the price for it.
