I really welcome every attempt of Microsoft to cope in every market they can, but why, WHY they don??t have made that stupid metro interface an optional item?
Maybe Microsoft must learn from the automotive industry, if something works well don??t change it. For sure today we can build cars with joysticks and touch sensitive brakes on a screen, but cars still have wheels and gear shifts and pedals just because is what we expect when we drive a car (and i know that some concepts have joysticks and stripes and so on but how many of them have you seen in the streets?).
So Microsoft has dumped the wheel, ther gear shift and pedals and replaced all with a "concept user interface" that suits well only to certain devices, and forget the huge quantity of us that works in front of desktops or notebooks.
And because human fingers are not stylus or 3 pixel width sticks, you can say goobye to precision, not to mention the fact that i don??t like my finger messing over my screen and my own arm hiding what i am doing over a 23" vertically shaped LED screen.
Is excellent for tablets, is excellent for phones, is crap for PCs.
Please, do not get my wrong, i love tablets and i love smartphones and i use them everyday, and i love the idea of one unified OS behind all these devices, but i also believe that one user interface can??t cope with all the situations, so let??s give the user the choice.
Give us back that desktop!!
