Windows 8 blamed for biggest
PC shipment plunge ever

Fox News, by Lisa Eadicicco

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/11/2013 1:17:23 PM

Global PC shipments fell by 13.9 percent in the first quarter of 2013, and according to analyst firm IDC , Windows 8 could very well be the reason. On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that 76.3 million PC units shipped during the most recent financial period, marking the biggest decline since the IDC began publishing quarterly numbers 19 years ago. “The reaction to Windows 8 is real,” Jay Chou, an IDC analyst, said to The Wall Street Journal. Increased demand for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have also played a role in this decline,

Comments:
That is certainly no surprise. There isn´t anything remotely appealing about Windows 8.

I bought 4 new PC´s with windows 7 on clearance sales when Windows 8 was released. Some of my business programs will not run in Windows 8 and I´m not about to buy more software. I´ll be running Windows 7 til they put me in the ground.

About a month ago I picked up my new iMac, I have departed the windows world for good. The Apple product costs a little more but you get what you pay for.

I love Windows 7. Stable, fast and does everything I need it to.

Windows 8 is horrible.

What is it about every other version of Windows???

It´s true, Windows 8 is a dog, looks to have been designed by a team of 16 year-olds. Has zero increased functionality, extreme poor "intuitive design", called Human Factors.

Steve Jobs gave a great interview about 15 years ago, called the "Lost interview"
Netflix:
http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Steve_Jobs_The_Lost_Interview/70243590?trkid=2361637

Jobs had little respect for MSFT, and concluded "they have no taste". Jobs was a true genius, visionary.

Windows 7 still seems so new. And it works great. I do think Microsoft has the right idea of hybrid touch tablet/PC OS though.

At the end of last year, my old pc with Windows XP finially bit the dust. I replaced it with a newer model that came with Windows 8. I have to say it hasn´t been a happy transition. Using the various features in Windows 8 is not at all intuitive, and many of my old programs are not compatible with this new OS.

#1, the same survey that says Windows PC sales are down says that Macintosh sales are down as well (there are other surveys that say differently, but the survey this article is based on does not support the conclusion). That being said, I do not like Windows 8 (even more than I dislike OSX).

Win7 is excellent. Win8 is hideous for anyone that wants to do any sort of document creation, or office type of work. Win8 is a PHONE operating system and will never be popular for business and scientific work. Just a total PITA.

Win8 is OK for "playing on the PC", incredibly bad for WORKING with a PC.

We had to buy a new laptop after our 7 yr. old desktop got a fatal virus. Windows 8 is so different from previous Windows and I don´t like it. It doesn´t let you ´x´ off pages like you used to be able to. It is weird, hopefully we´ll get used to it.

BTW, the Ransomware virus we obtained was called "The Department of Justice" scam. The computer was completely frozen out with a full page warning saying the Dept. of Justice has frozen the computer due to one of these three crimes: Child pornography, copyright infringement or unlicensed software. The page said if you send $300 from a MoneyPak prepaid card (it even tells you stores to purchase it) they will unlock the computer. Our TrendMicro Titanium was unable to stop it. We searched ways to get around it from another PC, but were not able to start in Safe Mode in able to do the required steps. Good thing we had a backup hard drive.

Win 8 is quite fine and has numerous improvements over 7. The plunge in PC sales has little to do with those who can´t (or won´t) grasp Win 8, but everything to do with the smartphone / tablet craze. People are addicted to those small devices that are always with you and have you always connected.

Today´s reality is that most things done by the majority of users don´t require a desktop of any kind (including Mac). It wouldn´t matter if Win 8 were the second coming of XP, desktop sales would still be down.

A couple months ago I bought a new PC to replace my older one. The new one had W8 on it and in less then four hours I packed the thing up and returned it for a refund. So, I took my old PC to computer geeks and had the thing cleaned totally up.....runs great now and if anyone from MC asked me about W8, I would tell them were to stick it.

I do most of my own hardware or software tech, but occasionally a problem is above my expertise level. The last time I called my reliable your computer tech to help me out, he told me about the problems with Windows 8. He had loaded it on one of his computers so he could help customers who used it. He hated it. When I was ready to replace one of my computers last month, he told me to make sure I got Windows 7. I did and and I remain happy.

Why anybody would willingly purchase a Microsoft product is beyond me. I switched to Apple 8 years ago and have never looked back. The computer turns on almost instantly, I´ve never had a virus. It´s intuitive to use. The only "issue" I have is that Office for Windows -- Excel, Word, PPT -- doesn´t work nearly as well on a Mac as it does on a PC. Office, of course, is engineered by Microsoft. Mac rules!

I had to use a Mac on a job once. Never again. The most proprietary system in the universe run by the biggest bunch of egotistical lie-berals.

Windows 8 will be the death of Microsoft if they don´t do something drastic very soon.

I am just never going to be geeky enough for LINUX.

Think I´ll dig through my old box of floppies to see if I still have a copy of DOS. Now THAT was an operating system that worked!!!

I have used every Windows version since 3.1 and Windows 8 is easily the best so far. It´s based on Windows 7 for those who do not know and takes about 15 seconds to be ready to use from the time I start my comp. Some people are flustered that they cannot find what they are use to using with previous windows versions but it is all there. You just have to take the time to find all the apps and shortcuts.

All Microsoft had to do was give the option to run the computer in "Windows 7 Mode", and Win8 would be fine. I bought a new desktop PC to use for recording music, and I cannot adequately put into words how much I dislike the Windows 8 interface. All it´s done is give me headaches, since it takes me forever to find anything on the computer. I don´t know anyone who likes it.

If Microsoft had given the option to choose instead this is what you will have they would not be having this problem. They figure since Win8 will be on all new computers that they do not need to listen to the consumer.

Two programs that will make Windows 8 more like Windows 7. You can try them for free for 30 days or buy them. I use both. Made all the difference.

Cable news and the Internet have many things in common, one of which is that they are both populated by lots of shameless attention-seekers. Perhaps it’s time to count the supposed Democratic House “candidate” Mike Dickinson — he of “war on Fox News” fame — as one of them? Dickinson has made a bit of a name for himself this year by claiming that, if elected to Eric Cantor‘s House seat, he will wage war on the NRA, the tea party, and Fox News. Since then, he’s been in multiple Twitter wars and has appeared on Fox for confrontations with

WASHINGTON -- A still-secret Senate Intelligence Committee report calls into question the legal foundation of the CIA’s use of waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques on suspected terrorists, a finding that challenges the key defense on which the agency and the Bush administration relied in arguing that the methods didn’t constitute torture. The report also found that the spy agency failed to keep an accurate account of the number of individuals it held, and that it issued erroneous claims about how many it detained and subjected to the controversial interrogation methods. The CIA has said that about 30 detainees underwent

What do you get when the state of Oregon, Planned Parenthood, and pharmaceutical companies that produce contraceptives get in bed together? The Seaside Adolescent Sexuality Conference (ASC). Marketed under the pretense of trying to prevent youth pregnancy and STD transmission, the conference, which took place earlier this week, is actually a platform for promoting a disturbing sexual agenda that has little to do with either.

Seirra Olivero, a 13-year-old student at Orange-Ulster BOCES, claims she was suspended from school last week after telling classmates they could opt out of taking the Common Core English test -- a decision few students and parents in the area knew was possible, according to the girl´s mother.

GENEVA — A United Nations human rights expert says the name of the Washington Redskins football team is a "hurtful reminder" of the mistreatment of Native Americans, but stopped short of joining in calls for the team´s owner to change the name. Last month, team owner Dan Snyder said he was creating a foundation to assist American Indian tribes but gave no indication he had plans to change the name, which he says honors Native Americans. On Friday, James Anaya — a UN expert on indigenous people´s rights — urged Snyder to "consider that the term ´redskin´ for many is

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz explained why the Obama administration chose to resign Kathleen Sebelius from her post as HHS Secretary, claiming that Senate Democrats in electoral trouble this November “demanded Kathleen Sebelius’ head.” Cruz spoke with Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett on Friday about the resignation of Obamacare’s top administrator, with the senator pointing out the politics behind Sebelius’ departure. “I think this resignation is the latest indication of what a disaster Obamcare has been,” he asserted. “I think Kathleen Sebelius should’ve resigned a long time ago. And the reason we’re seeing her resign now is because Senate Democrats are scared.” “They’re running

Federal judge slams Holder for ‘unprecedented

A federal judge criticized Attorney General Eric Holder for directing prosecutors to pursue shorter prison sentences for drug crimes before new guidelines for sentencing had been approved. The U.S. Sentencing Commission approved the reduced sentences for federal drug trafficking offenses on Thursday. Holder endorsed the move last month, and the Justice Department instructed prosecutors not to object if defendants sought the newly-proposed guidelines during sentencing. The Justice Department’s eagerness to apply more lenient sentencing before it had been approved through the appropriate channels frustrated commission member Judge William H. Pryor Jr., despite his support for the reform. “I regret that, before we voted

The new documentary Silence Patton: First Victim of the Cold War claims that General George Patton was murdered, possibly by the KGB, because he was vociferous in his desire to oppose the former Soviet Union. Writer-director Robert Orlando said his goal was to “prove to the viewer that he was silenced because his views didn’t go along with the status quo.” Patton died Dec. 21, 1945, as a result of injuries he suffered when he was traveling as a passenger in a car that was crushed by a two-ton truck.

The announcement that Kathleen Sebelius would be stepping down as Health and Human Services Secretary spread far and wide before the White House acknowledged it. Instead of announcing it themselves, the White House Twitter account retweeted a Vox post by Ezra Klein, claiming the move meant that Obamacare had "won." Klein immediately heralded the news on his new platform, Vox, with the title "Kathleen Sebelius is resigning because Obamacare has won." His unorthodox take on why people resign argued that Sebelius was resigning because she "can," because her job in that position was done. "In other words, the law has won

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
