Again: look at your Windows release history. The IT types *always* whines. A lot of storm and fury and it *never* means anything.
And the Win8 start screen is *not* a "Tablet interface". It is usable on XBOXes, Phones, and PCs. (To say nothing of the fact that PCs *still* have the Desktop one hardwired hot-key away.)

All these obituaries for a product that won't ship for three months?
Hyperventilation over very little.
It does, though. I.T. folks, along with lots of driver incompatibilities, admittedly, helped give Vista a huge negative buzz. The buzz from the tech saavy and the tech industry does make a difference.

It can't kill a product, but it can make an impact. And techies are pretty down on Windows 8...some of them really, really hate shoehorning the Win 8 tile start screen onto the desktop.

I don't know about the success of Windows RT. I think Surface Pro with x86 has a lot of potential, though - I'd certainly be considering it next year if I had some cash. Looks like an awesome gadget.
