Microsoft's New Coke?

The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Matt Koppenheffer, discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) is reworking some key parts of its Windows 8 operating system. The modified software will be released to consumers and businesses later this year.
