There’s a really quick, fairly objective way to tell if your UI sucks. Google:

win7 win8

It’s clear that more people are having trouble with more fundamental problems in Windows 8 than in Windows 7. Closing apps, shutting down, and finding programs are pretty central tasks in day to day computer. Over time, these autocomplete suggetions will change, but for now it’s clear that a lot of people using Windows 8 don’t know how to do the tasks they are familiar with in Windows 7.

1 Comment so far

  1. I get the point, but one possible explanation is just the level of familiarity people have from Windows 7 to 8? Not that I’m arguing against the notion that Windows 8 UI sucks either…
