Win 8 so easy to fix. Balmer too stupid to fix it.
All they have to do is add a classic desktop environment with a classic start button as a boot option. But these guys just don't listen. I am sure that not one person who tested this OS thought sticking a tablet start up screen on a server OS was a good idea.
They need to stop redesigning the OS interface. Nobody is interested in re-learning a new OS every few years. Add features, yes. Move everything around, no.
Metro boot is better than desktop boot. Can you get on the internet without a mouse click from desktop? You can booting to Metro.
When I boot to metro I punch enter and I'm at my home page, no looking & no positioning the mouse and when I close the web browser w8 goes to desktop.
I mean really, how often do you boot your PC to get on the internet? Probably 99% of the time.
Absolutely correct! Some with touch screens make appreciate Metro but some (apparently the majority) find it an obstacle to their productivity. What would a rational company do? It's obvious, simply give users a choice.
