It begins – Windows Blue is now dubbed Windows 8’s Failure – Financial Times

We knew this would happen and I’m surprised it’s taken that long.

In a pretty scathing piece on the Financial Times website, the F word was publicly associated with Windows 8.

The piece begins:

Microsoft is preparing to reverse course over key elements of its Windows 8 operating system, marking one of the most prominent admissions of failure for a new mass-market consumer product since Coca-Cola’s New Coke fiasco nearly 30 years ago.

The article (written by Richard Waters) makes the obvious point that if Windows Blue/Windows 8.1 turns out to be substantial reversals of Windows 8, Windows 8 will logically have been a failure.

The Windows 8 experiment is now being compared to Coca-Cola’s failed experiment with “New Coke”.

What do you all think? Is this too soon to call Windows 8 a failure?
