Existing apps will still work on Windows 8...not impressed

Five popular apps that Windows 8 supports - http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/five-apps/five-popular-apps-that-windows-8-supports/1497

Maybe if it was two weeks ago I would take the time to Photoshop a certain meme friendly Olympian on top of a screenshot of this article. I'm not criticizing the author's observations per se. It's the basic subject matter that seems out of whack. Should lack of support for existing applications be the norm?

This guy hits the nail on the head:


"What's sad is that this type of list is even needed. While just about every new version of Windows has some sort of compatibility issues, Win8 seems to have more than most. It doesn't bode well for it's success. MS is trying to make it a "must have" for Office 2013, but I don't think that will be enough. I'm curious to see if Win9 gets cranked out quickly the way Win7 followed Vista"
