Microsoft rolled out its new operating system, Windows 8, on October 26th. CEO Steve Ballmer insists that consumers “get it and like it.” But sales have been weak, Microsoft’s stock is in decline, and many Twitter reviews are scathing:

Windows 8 really is a pile of dogshit . Worst OS I’ve ever used.

I hate you Windows 8. I demand back the Start button, the X on Chrome, and everything else! And I identify as an early adopter.

Windows 8 is literally the worst OS I have ever used. If Vista had a child with an iPad, the resulting abomination would be Windows 8.

For someone who has the backward compatible design vision, Windows 8 is a nightmare. EVERYTHING’s broken again like Vista & no one cares.

To be fair, there are some positive reviews, too.

Nevertheless, it’s clear that Microsoft has a problem on its hands, notwithstanding Ballmer’s rosy assessment.
