Richard Doherty, an analyst at tech research firm Envisioneering has compared Microsoft’s Windows 8 to Coca-Cola’s New Coke. For those who were not around in 1985 Coca-Cola launched a new sweeter formula called New Coke to match/compete with Pepsi . It didn’t go over so well with consumers and within 3-months Coca-Cola re-introduced the “old Coke” as Coca-Cola Classic.
“This is like New Coke, going on for seven months – only Coke listened better,” he said.
