I know the interface (GUI) of Windows is old but I kind of like the old adage of, "If it works, don't fix it." The interface is fine. Yes, it has quirks but if the interface remained the same and they just worked on stability and reliability, people would be fine with that. Change for the sake of change ISN'T always a good thing. You can keep the meat and throw away the bones and then work on finding better ways to do what already works pretty darn good. I speak with people constantly who complain about even the changes in W7 over Vista. This new W8 GUI looks horrendous and I agree whole-heartedly with Jonathan that people will be calling me constantly for help. I'm already busy 16 hours each day with what is currently out there on people's computers. More changes means more problems. Refining is a better idea in my humble opinion. Sadly, today's business mantra isn't "if it works, don't fix it"; its "if it ain't broke, fix it until it is." Oy vey.
