with vista microsoft managed the most expensive product failure in human
with windows 6 microsoft regressed the telephone and exited the phone
here we have windows 8 - pointless to use - counter productive -
a regression of the desktop - everything in windows 7 thrown away
"The above points brings me on to one of my final points, in that I just
don’t use Metro. I want to like it, and having played with it a bit on my
iPad through Splashtop, I can see it being something really great on
tablets and touch screen computers. However as far as a mouse and
keyboard goes, I just don’t see it taking off. People like to see all of
their things on one screen so that they can quickly switch between
applications, however this isn’t really an option on the Metro user
interface as you have to keep clicking the right mouse to bring up tabs
or be able to change back to the home screen. As much as people want
something nice to look at on their PC, the main reason they have one is
for the usability, and Windows 8 just doesn’t seem to want to cater for
people who use the computer in their line of work. It’s fine for
children, teenagers and others who just use their computers for fun, as
there are some applications like Cut the Rope which are really great.
However the Metro UI would simply get in the way of people who need the
computer urgently in their work."
