NewYorker.com: Gates Spends Entire First Day Back in Office Trying to Install Windows 8.1 : The New Yorker
Bill Gates’s first day at work in the newly created role of technology adviser got off to a rocky start yesterday as the Microsoft founder struggled for hours to install the Windows 8.1 upgrade. The installation hit a snag early on, sources said, when Mr. Gates repeatedly received an error message informing him that his PC ran into a problem that it could not handle and needed to restart. After failing to install the upgrade by lunchtime, Mr. Gates summoned the new Microsoft C.E.O. Satya Nadella, who attempted to help him with the installation, but with no success. While the two men worked behind closed doors, one source described the situation as “tense.” “Bill is usually a pretty calm guy, so it was weird to hear some of that language coming out of his mouth,” the source said. A Microsoft spokesman said only that Mr. Gates’s first day in his new job had been “a learning experience” and that, for the immediate future, he would go back to running Windows 7.

Es ist empfehlenswert Windows als erstes Betriebssystem zu installieren, da bei der Windows-Installation der Master Boot Record (MBR) ohne Nachfrage überschrieben wird und damit andere Bootloader wie GRUB gelöscht werden. Da der native Windows-Bootloader die Ubuntu-Installation nicht automatisch erkennt, kann Ubuntu dann nicht mehr gestartet werden. GRUB wiederherzustellen ist je nach Erfahrung mehr oder weniger aufwändig.

So, that in a nutshell is the Microsoft method. Understand the market, and the customers, and then go pedal to the metal, with release after release focused on what the customers need, incorporating their feedback. That puts the competition into reaction mode. And of course it helps if they also make a strategic error because they are under so much pressure.
