Thanks to the invention of the Apple iPad, the world believes that everything should be an app and that your desktop should look like a children’s playground. This is not how business professionals see it. Being a power user, I enjoy a daunting task on one of my PCs every now and again. With the advent of latest Mac OS X update, Lion, it seems like you can flush technological goodness goodbye, right?
Meet Windows 7, not only is this operating system easy and fun to use, it does not look like my 6 year old niece should be able to access anything in my system. However, let’s not argue with Apple’s marketing strategies here, make a product (iOS) that succeeds and why not run with it. We all know that Apple has the LOWEST PC market-share and the only thing that they have created is a successful mobile campaign so why not port that?
Windows 8 is supposed to be taking on this “tile” theme, however, unlike Apple, Microsoft will not make that the only way that you can use the system.
Bottom line: I am all for having an easy to use system; yet, a computer is a sophisticated machine, it is only so dumb that you can make it LOOK before you hit it’s nerves. Win for Microsoft.
