What Is Microsoft Learning From Its Mistakes?

Patron Diego Acuna is invested in what Microsoft is doing, and whether the company is learning from its mistakes. You can become a Patron, as well, and receive a priority in getting your questions answered!

What do you think of the changes in Windows 8.1 Update 1 as well as the new start menu and support for modern UI apps running in the desktop coming in future update? Is Microsoft learning from its mistakes from Windows 8.0?

The company is not learning; it’s accommodating.

Only time will tell if it’s “learning” from its mistakes.

I think there’s a new Microsoft on the horizon, and that has me somewhat excited for what the future holds for consumers.

Windows 9 (or whatever Microsoft is gonna call it) will be telling, I feel. Will the company have done more than simply minimize the impact of a bifurcated UX? Nobody knows, but it’s quite possible that Microsoft has finally woken up to something I said a long time ago: we’re living in a world now where Microsoft needs us more than we need it.

  1. I think that a lot of folks within Microsoft were getting frustrated with all the backlash and an inability to respond to it while Ballmer was in charge. Under Nardella there’s a definite culture pivot happening.

  2. I rely on windows systems primarily…I’m looking forward to seeing what they have planned for the future. And I think Chris is right about the next installment being the crucial point for myself and other windows users…to decide whether to continue or to move on.

  3. I don’t really think Win 8.1 is a mistake. Win 8 was. 8.1 is what they should have released but just had to push the OS out.

    Removing the Start menu and instead forcing users to a touch screen based UI to use in place, with no option to use either or both, that was their mistake.

    Either way, install a Start menu program (like Start8, which gives u more customizations and options than the MS Start ever did) and ignore the Modern UI. Seriously, its not that hard. Easier than installing Office or Skype.
