NO, I WON’T
Shelling a few more Rupees is a pain... “In times like these, shelling a few more Rupees is a pain. So while I would love to get my home and office some snazzy new windows, don’t want to pay any more. I just downgraded one of my lower end Win7 laptops to XP... it now works faster.”
— Pradyuman Maheshwari, Editor-in-Chief and CEO, MxMIndia Not a single killer feature... There isn’t a single killer feature that will make us upgrade to Windows 8. But as a software company we need to be using
what our customers are using, and for us that means a mix of Windows and Mac desktops and laptops, as well as iPads. We will upgrade to Windows 8 when we see that a significant
portion of customer traffic on our website is using it.
— Abhi Vijayakar, Founder and CEO, Nunook Interactive Not good for power users, usability issue... “I find the Metro (now called Windows 8 Style) interface just adding an additional layer of style but affecting useability. Maybe good for first timers but definitely not for power users who need a leaner machine that works with fewer clicks. Going to bottom left all the time and the ways to access Desktop, Control Panel, folders, etc is clumsy. I think the attempt to mimic mobile on a desktop ignores needs for power user. Will wait till I am forced to adopt Windows 8 due to market reasons.”

Who Cares for the OS when you have browsers...
“In this world of mobile browsers, who cares for the OS and hence I won’t upgrade to Windows 8 just yet!”
