I'm sorry but that has got to be the stupidist set of posts I have ever read. "No need to have many apps open on the screen at any one time" really? what do you want people to use for computers? an ipad UI? Jesus christ, I cannot believe you defend microsofts actions like this so blindly. If you can't multitask with multiple applications open at once on your monitor you shouldn't even be using a computer. I have at least 12 things open at once here at work and need to have them all on the screen at the same time spanned over 2 monitors (need 3 infact for it to be easier to work with). It just doesn't make any sense why you would want to take a step back from this was of computing after soooo many years perfecting the desktop UI. It boggles my mind someof the things you write here.
Still with the iiNet group?
I'm just picturing a corporation like iiNet, Telstra, or any of the banks for example, forcing their users to use Metro apps.
Productivity would decrease dramatically. The people who seem to think otherwise can only be people who don't use a computer for work. I have 5 windows open right now, and I only work at a small mechanical shop!
When I was working for GE, I would have to have at least 12 windows open, usually more. This is still the case.
