People react to Windows 8 on video, can't figure out how to turn it off

People react to Windows 8 on video, many can't even figure out how to turn the system off

Windows 8 is new. It's massively different. And those things aren't always such a good thing because humans are creatures of habit. We don't like change, and some of the changes put into Windows 8 are interesting, to say the least. From my use, I found it to be much more complicated than it needs to be, and apparently so did the people in the video below.

 

 

As you can see in the video above, people didn't particularly like the system, even those who identified themselves as savvy users or the person who is a system admin. Almost all of the users had trouble doing even the simplest of tasks, such as turning the system off, something that should be straightforward to do.

 

Furthermore, many of the users said the interface feels like it belongs on a smartphone or tablet, which is accurate as that is what it was designed for. It really appears that Microsoft may have made a mistake by bringing a tablet/smartphone interface to the traditional desktop. Only time will tell if people will be able to adjust.

 

What are your thoughts on Windows 8?
