    Some do seem to jump on anything negative no matter what the source is and run with it. If it's on the Internet it must be true right?
    LOL.. It's just sad that some don't understand that there are some serious anti MS people and they will do anything they can to put Windows down. I just take all of the reviews with a huge grain of salt,.. what matters most is what I think of the OS and not what others do. Heck, I have to live with it they don't.

    I would expect at least one more name change, likely dropping the 10 and just calling it Windows.

    I suppose that they would have to put MS in front of Windows to not confuse the construction industry.

    The author of this articl is a "Flame Troll" and his articles are to be described as "Flamebait".

    If you don't understand these terms, an excerpt from Wikipedia:

    Flame trolling[edit]

    Flame trolling is the posting of a provocative or offensive message, known as "flamebait",[14] to a public Internet discussion group, such as a forum, newsgroup or mailing list, with the intent of provoking an angry response (a "flame") or argument over a topic the poster often has no real interest in.[15] While flaming can occur as a result of legitimate debates or grievances, flame trolling implies the intentional posting of inflammatory, grossly offensive or menacing rhetoric or images for the fun of it in order to cause others harm.[16]
    As stated, flame trolling can stem from a variety of issues, including misunderstandings, frustration, and perceptions of unfairness. One motive (from trolls especially) is the desire for attention and for entertainment derived at the expense of others.[17] Posted flamebait can provide the poster with a controlled trigger-and-response setting in which to anonymously engage in conflicts and indulge in aggressive behavior without facing the consequences that such behavior might bring in a face-to-face encounter, a fact parodied in a YouTube video by Isabel Fay.[18] In other instances, flamebait may be used to reduce a forum's use by angering the forum users. In 2012, it was announced that the US State Department would start flame trolling jihadists as part of Operation Viral Peace.[19]
    I hope I highlighted all the parts that fit him

    This has been known since day one and yet all these bloggers continually post sensational headlines.(Gordon Kelly is up there with the worst)
    I think finally figured it out. Gordon Kelly is intentionally misreading things, and creating sensationalist headlines in an attempt to force Microsoft to release information. If that is in fact what he's doing, and if you read his articles and responses in the comment section, it appears to me that this is indeed the case, then he's not being a journalist at all. He's using his position to extort a company into doing his wishes.
