Windows 8: Is it going to be another ME or Vista release?

It’s really devastating to Microsoft to look at a new operating system about to be released, and to be compared to previous operating system blunders like Windows ME and Windows Vista… both of those operating systems were supposed to be better than the last, but they found themselves in an awkward position, receiving a ton …
