My friend said "IE 10 don't have Flash everybody is saying it on the internet" I told her to go to manage add-ons and enable it. Right after that she asked if I find her a iPad(non flash device) on ebay.

Well I usually hear that ms screwed up vista and released 7. Then just as people started to like them, they went ahead to release windows 8. Or that the search is bad and confusing to use. Or that windows 8 is only good for personal use. Its not efficient for a work environment. Because people want to be working and not trying to figure out how the OS works. Or that it's not pretty. I even had 1 person use my laptop and tell me he couldn't fin his way around. That some program did not work without the compatibility mode and told me to reconsider keeping windows 8. He told me me that if his computer wasn't working well, I could at least be nice and accommodate his needs by going back to 7.

The most stupid thing that I constantly hear and read is how bad and difficult W8 is because Microsoft took the start button away. They never try it and see how simple and beautiful the start screen is.
The second dumbest thing I hear is you have to have a touch screen to use W8. Yeah, it's nice to have bur W8 works perfectly with keyboard and mouse.
The third dumbest thing I hear is nobody wants a touch screen on their desktop. Works great for me, And I love browsing websites and ApS with it.

I find OS X terribly ugly, but most people would likely disagree.

When I bought all the managers the L710 I had one guy ask why the little "squares "keep flipping out.....
My phone crashed? how so....the squares are all gone see....grr not squares they are live tiles your phone did not crash just hit the windows button. Oh wow..
Now after a year this is the big beef I get
Why can't we have bigger phones?....in the end of the 12 people who got one from us 9 of them went out and bought WP8 devices for there own use.all they had to do was use it. one girls said hey how come this phone never needs to reboot.....it's not Android it's a WP device the day the L920 came out she bought one loves it gave her iphone to her kid which wants a WP8 device lol the tide will turn

"Its got a steep learning curve" is one thing you hear a lot. And its usually from the "Power Users" who can't work out how anything works anymore.
Windows 8 is definitely the right step for the majority of people. My father in law bought an iPad recently and has been really excited saying that this is the first time he understands a PC. This type of simplicity and consistency of the Metro interface is what most people want - not dealing with malware, firewalls, software installers that take over your system and registry etc

A gamer friend of mine was saying how Windows 8 is like the Nazi Germany cos of how you cant play any games on it that didn't come through the Win 8 app store. He was siding alot with the stuff from Gabe Newell, but apparently didnt understand half of it.
Then when I was trying to tell him how he's wrong, he brings in Minecraft and Notch and how you can't play Minecraft on Windows 8 cos it's a closed ecosystem. I had to go all the way to download Minecraft, connect to his own server and take a screenshot for him lol.
WP on the other hand is fairly common in Finland due to Nokia so the ignorant comments are quite rare.

To be fair, Android 4.0/4.1 is a considerable improvement over the 2.x versions. On the other hand, I get "pocket app selection" periodically on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and I never have had that on any other smartphone I've used extensively (the aforementioned HTC Trophy and Motorola Droid 2, or the Apple iPhone 4). That may due to poor button placement on the Galaxy Nexus (power button on the right side rather than the top, which I hate, plus it is too easy to press the volume controls on that device relative to other smartphones I own).

Dumbest thing. It's Microsoft, so it lags and bluescreens. Yet my techie friend was convinced my titan was quad core it was that smooth. Yet it's a single core. WP 1-0 Android. :D

My coworker started taking programming classes at a community college. He didn't know much about anything tech so this class has really taught him a lot. His professor talked to the class about windows 8 so I showed him my laptop...apparently his professor didn't know that win 8 still has the desktop screen =/ .

What really bothers me are all the people that just say that it sucks, when it's clear they haven't even tried it. People really seem to hate change, and it shows.

Live tiles and Widgets are basically the same thing...NOT!
