    LOL - That was so funny. :)

    Usually I don't care for the comment as it is a known trolling comment. You could see the sencerity in his expression after being totally lost within Windows 8.

    Yes, it is funny - the guy is a good sport to let it be shown.

    That is a real everyday user.

    Microsoft really should take note of this kind of thing.

    He's got a point when he doesn't know how to go back to the Start Menu, that took me ages!

    I think if I had a cam running when I first installed Windows 8, I would have recorded something not that far different. Maybe if Microsoft had embedded a auto webcam recording utility into the installation process of Windows 8, there would be a lot more of such scenes being recorded.

    That is funny .. but for the old people isn`t. Microsoft should know this before they released a total different operation system than the ones before. For old people is like changing their whole world ..

    Drive me to Mac, indeed. I'm an old guy but I'm not a neophyte, been in IT as a second career, and even used Windows V1 on a PC in the early 80's, but I was in the same boat with this guy. Took me only a couple of hours to decide to unload 8 and get back to 7.

    I am trying to figure out ways to make the Metro look like a graphical Windows 7 start menu. I have moved the Metro applications off the start, and made a few folders. I am now trying to find a way to collapse the folders so that the space is better utilised.

    I don't really quite understand why we are trying to make Windows 8 look like Windows 7. The two versions of Windows are different things designed for different purposes.

    The video is a perfect example of how windows 8 is not user-friendly enough for those who have less knowledge of computers. Microsoft should add an option to run the desktop first instead of the metro menu. They should also add a start menu button like in all versions of Windows. The purpose of windows 8 is for tablets but since its also going to be available on the normal desktops, Microsoft should implement these features to make the experience a lot easier for everyone.
