Many companies reversed bad decisions by starting with "Due to popular demand, we decided to bring back...", and then MS should release a patch that reverses the castration they did to the desktop. They will have some egg on their face for being "wrong" for a short while until people forget about it, and we will all go back to being happy again. Failure to do so will just result in more and more people looking for alternatives.

Start looking for alternatives...
