Windows 8 Is a Failure as Big as New Coke

Illustration for article titled Windows 8 Is a Failure as Big as New Coke

According to Tami Reller—Microsoft's Windows marketing boss—PC users think Windows 8 is too hard to learn. So hard that they are "fixing" it big time. Some people are calling this update the biggest consumer product failure since Coca-Cola's New Coke, which was discontinued three months after its introduction. Except New Coke was a matter of taste and Windows 8 is objectively a better user experience—one that has failed to overcome decades of old user habits. [Gizmodo]
