Not rushed
Authored by: Anonymous on Monday, November 19 2012 @ 07:54 AM EST

Considering how long it took Microsoft to produce, there's no way it was
rushed.

Those are features, not bugs (see what a whole week of reading UberSoft
will do to a mind?)

MS innovated the 'release w/ bugs' paradigm from the very beginning. Initially,
folks were horrified, then, through the years, they learned to live with it.
Now we know well their strategy: make as much money as quickly as you can.

Hey Bill, maybe you need more H1Bs to work on Win8.

Random reboots, crashing...

Sounds like Windows to me, what's the problem? You wanted Windows, you got it.

The reboots aren't random

You see... Microsoft has learned from their past {snicker} ahem... scuse me... they've learned {snicker} ... sorry... this is actually pretty hard to say with a straight face.....

{straightens hair, firms up mouth} ok... let me try again...

They ... ahem.... learned their OS is fraught with such technical issues as memory leaks. As a result, they have scans in their OS against such things as memory to detect when such leaks are occuring. In order to correct the situation, the scans trigger a reboot upon reaching a threshhold value of corruption.

So as you see.... it's not random reboots. Sometimes the memory leaks (and other issues) build up faster then other times :)
