This is exactly what I always believed about Metro. I can kind of see it working on a phone, where you would quickly glance at it for a status update. But even there it isn't optimal. But on a pc...

I don't know, this sounds too intelligent to be true....

Xbone - Powered by Windows 8..... Lol
But hey, you can watch TV with the Xbone! Lol...

Can MS get any more lame? Windows 8, Windows 8.1 with new non-improved (useless) start button...

Here is a radical suggestion for Microsoft.

Why not actually listen to feedback and create a version of Windows that people want?

Radical idea I know....

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 - 2:21pm

Lol, everything that is being said here as a negative of Chrome OS applies equally to Metro. Right?

Yet everyone here sings the praises of that useless piece of garbage...

Friday, September 20, 2013 - 3:10pm

Yawn...

This would have been big news a couple of years ago but most IOS users who need Office functionality have moved on to other apps.

I'm sure there are large corporations that...

Microsoft has got a couple of big problems with Windows Phone IMO.

First, they can't update their software fast enough.
Second, while live tiles seemed like a great idea, notification...

Lol, MS is still living in the past. I really wonder sometimes if they want to fail.

Do they really think they can charge top dollar for an OS that people don't even like in this day and...

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 12:18pm

Actually the new logo reminds me of the boot that Microsoft is sticking up the a** of Windows desktop users....

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 - 11:30am

Do you really think it's valid to compare what Microsoft is doing today to switching between the Amiga and DOS for gaming?

Really? Gaming?

We are talking careers here Paul, not...

Tuesday, August 13, 2013 - 2:50pm

A couple more policy reversals and they might actually get me and my friends to buy this console...

Maybe Microsoft is finally getting the memo that their users don't want a bunch of empty...

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 - 3:42pm

Lol, another Microsoft fail here.

Honestly as a huge Xbox fan I'm shocked how Sony has just kicked Microsoft's teeth in. No doubt me and all my friends and family are going PS4 next Gen....

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 - 10:26am

As an owner of multiple (4+) original Xbox's and 2 Xbox 360's I can say goodbye Xbox One. Just when I thought MS couldn't possibly screw up more than they did with Windows 8, they out do that epic...

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 - 11:48am

Honestly this makes no sense. If you go to the all apps view then you are basically bypassing the live tiles interface. If you are going to let users bypass the live tiles interface why not just...

Saturday, May 25, 2013 - 3:35pm

I agree. But this kind of begs the question of why Microsoft feels the need to jam this mobile environment down desktop users throats....

Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 10:26am

The start menu will be back in 3 years in Windows 9. What do you expect? Miracles? If it takes MS a year to replace the original start button with a useless one in Widows 8, imagine how long it...

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 5:32pm

Unfortunately I have to agree with you. Google is the new Microsoft and Microsoft is the old IBM...

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 - 5:12pm

Yea, but MS is bringing back the Start button!

Sunday, May 12, 2013 - 1:43pm

Well I've been in IT as long if not longer than you, so that's neither here nor there. And as far as the choices you've made, that's fine. Apart from my not loving Windows 8 I think we have more...

Saturday, May 11, 2013 - 5:28pm

Lol....

I mean wow.

I really don't know what to say. How much Microsoft Kool-aide did you drink before writing this?

Next thing you know you'll be writing about how great...

You make a lof of assumptions in your paragraph. A sale to an OEM is a sale. End of story. What you also dont understand is that volume licenses are NOT included in...

Friday, May 10, 2013 - 8:55am

Windows 8 has sold like a dog, that's a fact.

Putting a microwave oven inside my toilet would be a remarkable technical feat also. Who cares if nobody wants it?

Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 5:29pm

I was typing a long response when I realized why bother. The people who like Windows 8 will continue to defend it and the people who don't will continue to bash it.

But the market has...

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 5:03pm

Too little, too late...

Windows 8.1 DOA

But hey, MS is #5 in tablets right?

Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - 3:35pm

Windows 8 gets an F in my book.

And for all the time MS has had to work on Blue I don't see any great improvement there either....

Saturday, April 6, 2013 - 9:01am

So true.

While I am an iPhone 5 user I can admit that Metro is actually a good mobile phone interface. If MS hadn't been soooo late to market with it, it might have been a contender. Why...

Sunday, March 31, 2013 - 12:01pm

This ought to get Windows 8 up to at least 8% market share this holiday season....

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 - 4:40pm

I have got to ask, how do you guys find this stuff in the registry?

Monday, March 25, 2013 - 9:02pm

From your lips to Gods ears....

Monday, March 25, 2013 - 5:25pm

Lol, Microsofts magic boot time in Windows 8. I'll tell you what, enable hibernate mode in Windows 7 and tell me how great Windows 8's boot time is. You do know that is where most of the boot...
