What Microsoft doesn’t realise is just how much Windows 8 is going to backfire. They’ve gone through the entire design and developer process being completely oblivious, and if we go by the sample of people in this video, it’s going to be a disaster.
Chris Pirillo asks a selection of people on the street to try and shut down a Windows 8 machine. And the result is pretty funny. Take a look!
You might say that it’s feature for a piece of Windows software that restores the Start menu so making it look as confusing as possible was the intention, but you’d be wrong.
When Chris got his Dad to try it out, it was equally catastrophic (as you can see), and that was definitely not sponsored in any way.
Microsoft has committed the cardinal sin – completely changing all of the familiar aspects that people will recognize about Windows, and trying to have one OS for many different types of devices. That’s never going to end well.
