Is windows 8 likely to flop like Vista with regard to cost and hardware-related issues?
How affordable are computers that are capable of running the Metro touch-screen interface? Are costs set to come down in the long run?
I don't think the hardware cost will be the issue, I think the adoption of corporate customers will be the issue. Windows 7 is too stable and Metro is too big of an interface change to have corporations adopt early in the cycle.
I am not a fan of the Windows Operating System but I have to admit Windows 7 is a pretty decent release. It seems fairly stable and works better than other recent releases.
Following such a release with such a drastic change in the interface seems like a big gamble for Microsoft. I doubt many people will be in a hurry to rush out and purchase Windows 8. People may warm up to it after awhile, but I can see it being shunned much as Vista was when it was released.
Costs always come down in the long run with computers. It just depends on how long you want to wait before buying.
