The short list of the most spectacular commercial failures in American History has grown to three: The Ford Edsel, New Coke have been joined by Windows 8.

And yet my really big question,...

Mozilla Kills Modern Version of Firefox Commented on: 35 weeks ago (March 16, 2014)

I ran the Windows 8.1 preview for a few weeks, saya few days of exclusive use. I failed to find one single thing the Metro/Modern/Whatever-it's-called interface was in any way or form prefferable...

Windows 8.1 Update 1: Use the Taskbar in Modern Apps Commented on: 36 weeks ago (March 9, 2014)
