    Microsoft prepares U-turn on Windows 8

    UK Financial Times newspaper

    "Microsoft is preparing to reverse course over key elements of its Windows 8 operating system, marking one of the most prominent admissions of failure for a new mass-market consumer product since Coca-Cola’s New Coke fiasco nearly 30 years ago."

    Toaster and fridge is good. I always say Ferrari and grain combine; and I for one became almost immediately addicted to New Coke, as soon as it switched back, haven't had a case-worth since. New Coke didn't have the aftertaste that Coke classic does.

    And what exactly does "as well as not focusing all of its financial incentives behind the touchscreen PCs that show off Windows 8 to best advantage" mean? That Microsoft is maybe going to subsidize the touch screen product lines a bit more? Who said they had to do that way back when to boost themselves into the market in a much more pronounced way (looks into mirror)? That and keep improving/innovating at a much stronger clip. One cannot enter the touch market and then update at a desktop pace.
