A regular Hardware 2.0 commentator challenges me to do something that may well be impossible -- fix Windows 8.
You've spilled a lot of pixels telling us what's wrong with Windows 8
. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, it to come up with a concise way that Microsoft could salvage the operating system before it's released.
This is a tough challenge, given that Windows 8 is only a few months away from release. There's not a lot that Microsoft can do in this time. However, given that the Redmond giant has already gone on the record to say that the UI that we see in the Windows 8 Release Preview
is not what will be in the final release, it's safe to say that things are in a certain state of flux.
