Microsoft should stick with software as none of that is impressive to me.
Aw I don't know, if MS does anything well it's their hardware products. Over the years I've purchased a number of Microsoft hardware items and they've all been well made quality products that have outlasted similar pieces from other manufacturers. I still have a MS keyboard and mouse combo that I bought in 2004, and 8 years later it still performs without missing a beat... something I cannot say for other brands I've tried. Their webcams are good as well.
But then again, neither is Windows 8
That's how I felt about Win 8... until I found that I could completely eradicate Metro and use 8 as I do Win 7. Sure, it'd be better if it worked that way right out of the box and you didn't have to rely on 3rd party apps to make it that way, but once I installed Winstep Xtreme to enable all my shortcuts and access points, etc. - not to mention restoring the start button and menu - it was like being back in Win 7 only faster.
True, that Metro abomination should be consigned to Hell in an express elevator, but underneath it, there's a decent OS that functions pretty well once you configure it to your needs.
