Truly good news to competitors.

I already find my clients skipping Windows 8 just like they did Vista. Keep in mind I don't deal with consumers a lot. The new way might be better for those without exposure to prior computers and is a step to something new.

However if you don't listen to your clients, they tend to go elsewhere.

It may actually be good

for the world to have another touch-based OS that isn't free. Incentive for the G-company to keep it's edge. As far as touch vs. desktop, that's a given. Kids growing up babysat by smartphones and tablets won't take to the mouse and touchpad like seniors (yes you, don't even think of them as your mom and dad, but just look in the mirror) who will fade into the sunset with their PCs. Meanwhile, Metro--Modern--whatever!, touch-haters can continue to give MS a rough ride by refusing to abandon their pre-8 machines. Woebegone the consumer wretch who's machine dies and is forced to 8, 8.5, 9. Business users, just suck it up and learn whatever UI you have to ... it's your living ain't it?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
