A Serious Proposal To Fix Windows 8

gbkersey Familiarity is Key! (578 comments)

So, M$ has the franchise for the most popular (not saying best or worst), but the most well known user interface. That is the key thing they have. So why do they change it into something that no one recognizes. The "upgrades" to the Office interface have made it unusable. Now they do the same to Windows... Looks like they are throwing their franchise away to me.
