Translation: We botched up Windows 8 so we need to do a reboot (windows vista to 7) again. If we do not we will not stay relevant.

Dear Microsoft, quit pushing a touchscreen OS for PC users. Our desktops and laptops don't need touchscreen capabilities. We like our screens to be smudge free. Thanks!

P.S. - Be smart and include the start menu this time around.

This is what happens when an MBA with no tech vision tries to run a tech company. You get a lot of incremental updates. Coordinated, orchestrated releases. Big marketing pushes. And complete commercial flops, not to mention a general lack of understanding of emerging markets and technologies, and how to turn those into opportunities.

If they want to continue to own the desktop arena, and make any headway in the tablet arena, then they will need to deflate the ego of the person who "owns" the O/S, and break it into multiple sets of GUIs separated by target platforms. This will allow the tablet O/S team to move more quickly to make GUI enhancements that suit tablets and phones, without having to drag behind them the entire platform architecture and hardware/driver/software landscape. This will also allow the desktop/laptop O/S team to stop putting cobbled GUIs in their systems, so that users won't have to deal with "Modern UI" debacles.

So that people like you can ask such questions and expect answers.

People like janetonly42 say that in order for the rest of the people and the RIGHT people(Microsoft) to understand they need to come up with something good, not bs - talking STRICTLY from a DESIGN perspective, tweaks and performance left aside - and no, Microsoft, don't come with that "it's a better performer than the previous release, so maybe you can forget about the interface that TOTALLY SUCKS from A-Z" Simple is not the opposite of stylish, learn that for once.

So the next time you post such questions, look in the mirror and ask those questions out loud...maybe you realize where the problem is.

I'm loving W8 at work: built-in ISO & VHD mounting, built-in dual monitor task bar support, new task manager is hawt, built-in Hyper-V for Enterprise/IT professionals like myself. I can see non-tech users complaining about the missing start button, but come on... you people are still bitching about it on TOMS HARDWARE?!?! LOL... the only time I used the start menu in W7 was for search and the occasional "Devices and Printers". F'n newbs.

Oh... and it's also pretty sweet in a HTPC config as well, the metro UI on a 60" HD LCD is something to behold, first time I plugged it up I was amazed, convinced me to cut my cable TV subscription.

Yeah... the metro UI is definitely in it's infancy, but in certain situations it's truly amazing, the desktop IMO isn't one of them... thankfully it's one click and you're to your work area.

I truly believe all your downvotes are directly related to your shocking use of punctuation, but the thorough ignorance in your content didn't help either

I agree, desktops and laptops don't need touchscreen, but that is not win8 fault. It looks like vendors are confused.
Win8 can do everything that Win7 can do, in the same manner. Touchscreen functionality is just a plus witch gives us great flexibility. You can use tablet in multi-monitor setup as desktop or you can use AIO as huge tablet or you can run tablet games on desktop without touch screen. Nothing is lost.
Why do you need start menu? I didn't use it since I've upgraded from XP to Vista. That was a long time ago...

Microsoft... it was nice knowing you since 1993 when I got my first PC, but now I have to say goodbye because you are doing a lot of bad and stupid things.
I hated Windows 8 and instead if fixing it you are heading in a direction that I do not want to go.
I think you are going to be a huge loser and many of Windows users will join me to emigrate to another OS, most likely Linux. I hate evil Apple and will never use their software.
I never imagined that Microsoft has such imbeciles running it.
It is the beginning of the end for Microsoft.

The only downfall of the Linux distrobutions is none of the use DirectX. Untill that happens and i can take full use of my video card i wont ever switch over. I dont hate or like microsoft. I dont hate or like Apple. Both companies are American therefore that is why i dont hate them But there has got to be something better out there. Untill a Linux distro gets DirectX support (if ever and if there something i dont know about direct x please say so) i wont switch. The psudo DXsupport through Wine and Wine tools just doesnt cut it.

Try running multiple apps on same screen at once no thanks windows 8 is horrible for productivity i need access to multiple apps all on screen at once so far my store has sold 8 copies of windows 8 and 7 came back to downgrade to 7.
Businesses are now learning that windows 8 is bad for productivity unless it changes they will stay away the 10 business customers we have have looked at windows 8 and specified that they will stay with windows 7 as it does not support their software ie. they NEED multiple windowed apps open on two screens.
Microsoft should also change the name to window 8 there is no 's windows 8 can only view one app on screen at a time.

Horrible for productivity? The whole OS? REALLY? Metro apps maybe, but thats because they are for big/touch screens. They are apps, and they aren't really the productive tools for a desktop, but what they are is convenient. If you just want to view mail or something in a few seconds, it works.

For everything realistic though, there is the desktop which is just not going away, where you can hold 50 applications open at the same time :).

All the 7 out of 8 returning means is either ignorance or just plain old stupidity. Refusing to learn to push a single button for everything to be the same as any older OS is just plain silly.

I was a bit worried before Windows 8 was released, and Microsoft fanboys on various sites were loud with praise, but after Windows 8 got less than 3% market share in 4 months (with Xmas shopping and upgrade discounts), I see there's nothing to worry about.

Windows 7 will be supported until 2020, any by then Microsoft will either fix this mess or become irrelevant.

Think about AIO's, they don't suck with touch on a desktop :).
Metro, yeah, i kind of agree that it sucks a bit, but hey, metro more or less is a start menu. Its just a cleaner one.
