Windows 8 is a personal computer operating system developed by Microsoft as part of the Windows NT family of operating systems. Development of Windows 8 started before the release of its predecessor, Windows 7, in 2009. It was announced at CES 2011, and followed by the release of three pre-release versions from September 2011 to May 2012. The operating system was released to manufacturing on 1 August 2012, and was released for general availability on 26 October 2012.

So....can we draw the conclusion that, rather than shoveling the blame etc onto "impatient consumers" in our much loved capitalist societies, we would do better to point the finger where it deserves to be pointed ?..(I am looking squarely at you MSFT)
If you cant stand the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen .......may well apply.
Msft has had an enormous amount of time to develop their OS's. As we all know their budget is virtually unlimited.
However...we digress....the topic is about the Surface Book range with Win 10
Within hours of Microsoft's new Surface Book landing in the hands of customers I began seeing reports of serious bugs and issues affecting Microsoft's new flagship device.
Are we expected to believe that msft didnt even turn the machines on !!!???.....yes apparently we are.......that has nothing to do with perceived demands on the part of consumers.....nor does it have any connection to 'pain in the butt' customers.
This is similar to buying some of the chinese made engines for power equipment.....one becomes aware very, very quickly that 'quality control' is close to non existent.
It would appear that buying from msft brings with it the same 'leap of faith'
We expect much, much, better Msft.
Condobloke ...Outback Australian fed up with Windows antics...??....LINUX IS THE ANSWER....I USE LINUX MINT 18.3 EXCLUSIVELY.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
