It's too early to call Windows 8 a turkey; perhaps we can make that determination next year based on how well the first significant revamp of the Windows OS in more than a decade goes. But Windows 8 did come with somewhat of a blunder for Microsoft. When first announcing Windows 8 the company called apps running on the platform "Metro" apps. Then, for some reason, Microsoft changed its mind. "Metro" was no longer the term of choice, but instead "Modern app" and "Windows 8-style" app were considered until Microsoft decided "Windows Store Apps" would be the official name. Is it that hard to make up your mind about the apps on your new platform?
