to mix up their well named Windows PC operating system with their new designed "Metro style" look from phone and tablet. And at third the new ribbons elements with the new styled icons.

The mix is messy and confusing and looks like three things are glued together which wont fit.

I have also used the Office preview and this is the same mess.

My recommandation: "buy something with an Apple Logo and you're out of trouble: it just works"

I predict an armageddon - they are foolish....
Press F1 for help or google it.
