Microsoft has a lot riding on the next version of Windows. It's no secret Microsoft's Windows 8 is a flop with consumers.
Under the skin, 8 is actually a really good operating system, but Microsoft tried something too radical with the interface and left the majority of people confused and annoyed. Can it possibly turn things around?
To be fair, Microsoft does have a habit of turning things around. That's what Windows 7 did after Vista, Windows XP did after ME and Windows 98 Second Edition did after 98 and 95. In fact, as a rule, it seems best to upgrade to every other version of Windows.
So, does the rule hold true this time around? Today was Microsoft's official unveiling of the new Windows, so let's take a look and see if there's hope for Microsoft.
