They were quick to ditch the first Xbox so I can see the same thing happening here as well.

CEO should just shut it all down. Focus on making WINDOWS better instead lol.


Screw 8. 7 is better. MS always does 2 step forward, 1 or more steps back.

Yeah......NO.

And man do I hate Windows 8. Stupid "charms" and "side-swipes."

:P
