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.
