Redditors take a dump on W8

Unfortunatly, I had to wake up to a huge discussion over at critisizing W8 brutally. We all know how influential that site is with the hivemind effect.

Here's what I'm talking about:

I would like to know how you all feel about their reasoning.

Do you feel like it's a big google marketing scam? How much do you feel this will negatively affect W8's reputation? Based on these reviews I also feel like this will affect WP8 sells as well, only becuase of the negative association with it's desktop OS.

What are your thoughts?
