Since everyone is talking about Windows 8 and the problems that it has let me address some issues from the disability stand point. I will list these out one at a time with minimum confusing.
1. The obvious, most people who are disabled are on a limited income and can't afford a touch screen computer unless they are going through a government programs.
2. people with disabilities have a hard time as it is to be trained on a different OS much less a different way to get around on it by touch some won't because of not being able physically to raise a finger or a hand to operate the computer by touch with out a 3rd party software vendor stepping in.
I could go on and on but we all know that Microsoft is betting the farm on Windows 8 and from where i am sitting they will loose a hell of a lot more than a farm. The next thing that we will hear is Microsoft going to the whitehouse and asking for a government loan to put them back in the black. Comments are welcome but i will not be switching to Win 8 just on the merits that i stated above.
