Microsoft is no longer 800 LBS gorilla it once was. It has lost of weight and the performance with Windows 8 is less than stellar. Hopefully, they'll be smarter than Icaza who has ruined GNOME, and bring back the venerated "Start" button. The "metro" is not what I want. However, their office suite is second to none. Active directory and Exchange are excellent software. There are many good and sound products at MS. As for the GNOME, I have switched to XFCE and have not looked back. XFCE is a decent desktop environment which doesn't attempt to turn my laptop into a cell phone.
