What Microsoft needs to focus on for the next release can be summed up in one word: choice.

Lack of choice was the big problem with Windows 8, and it got only slightly better with Windows 8...

Nokia Lumia "Black": App Folder Commented on: 33 weeks ago (January 10, 2014)

One must ask when Microsoft developed an allergy to folders. A very annoying detail of Windows 8(.1) is the inability to create folders in either the Start Screen or the All Apps list.

Windows 8.1 Update 1 (Very Early) Preview Commented on: 33 weeks ago (January 8, 2014)

If Microsoft plans to experiment with a start menu that will further infuriate desktop users, then it should be released in the update. That way they can change it for the Threshold/8.2/9 version...

Further Changes Coming in Windows "Threshold" Commented on: 37 weeks ago (December 10, 2013)
