Alt+F4 also closes metro apps.
Didn't say it didn't, all I said was it's easy to close apps in Windows 7, windows 8 doesn't make closing apps easier.
Stop whining that the start screen is full screen, it is only up for a second or two. It shows more information at once. And explain WHY the little rectangle in the corner of the screen is better than the full screen start menu? Do you just dislike change?
The small rectangle is nice, because it doesn't distract me from anything, I mean I can have it up, and not even be looking at it while launching an app, it doesn't take away ANYTHING from my view on the desktop. 0 broken focus. Shows more information? Such as... Weather? There's a gadget, Mail? There's a gadget, CPU Usage? There's a gadget. Guess what? They are all gadgets that go on the desktop and can be viewed at any time without having to switch to another screen. Really? I don't like Windows 8, or see faults so I instantly hate change? That's funny brah.
There is a lot of power user features in 8. Right click in bottom left (or Win+X) for a very useful menu. Didn't you see all the fast links in the ribbon in explorer? How about that new task manager? File copy dialog?
Not saying Windows 8 doesn't have nice features, but in adding nice things I feel they took away some really nice things too. Honestly though how many people stare at Task Manager, 99% of people open TM to see Memory usage, CPU Usage, or to kill programs that froze.. .all of which is easy to do on <=W7
Face it, when shown videos like this the Windows 8 haters resort to pretty lame arguments.
The only arguments the Windows 8 haters are going to have in this thread basically boil down to them disliking it for no particular reason.
Or so you assume, your assumption is that someone who doesn't like something is talking out of their ass, have no clue why they don't like it, hate change for the sake of hating it. Which sorry to burst you bubble isn't true. There are plenty of people who feel the same as me, and have their own reasons for disliking it. If you are too blind to see that people have valid feelings about something, then that's on you, but don't make assumptions and group people together just because you can't understand why they don't like something you do.
