nk497 writes "A Gartner analyst made headlines after describing Windows 8 desktop as: "in a word: bad". After web reaction, including one story asking why anyone bothers to listen to the consultancy firm anymore, Gunnar Berger has now yanked the offending sentence from his blog post, saying it was taken out of context and only applied to using the desktop with a mouse and keyboard, and that overall Windows 8 is a good thing. "If you look at my blog, I've gotten rid of it," he said. "It's upsetting me that it's being taken completely out of context.""
