Well put, Woody. Although I don't go as far back as flipping-switches computing I've been around long enough to know Win8 is not about traditional computing. Imagine trying to write a book on an iPad. Imagine trying to keep your Quicken finances on Win8. Imagine trying to keep a 8mb Excel spreadsheet on an iPhone. The trouble with Microsoft is they have to make Windows updates "worth while" so as to satisfy Wall Street. They come out with a completely irrelevant version of Windows for which they will charge hundreds of dollars. We're left in the dust.
