A full screen app launcher does not a "Tablet OS" make.

All the patents need to stop stifling innovation.

Pretty much every point in that post doesnt apply to how Win8 actually works. Especially the point about only 2 windows.
The desktop environment still exists exactly as it did in Win7.
I often have multiple windows open.
The only limitation regarding 2 windows applies only to Metro apps.

I think they made too big a change too fast. People don't like change to begin with. Take it slow and easy. Use Metro in tablets and give desktop users a choice of what to run. The way it stands I don't see many businesses rushing out to try Windows 8. The retraining costs would be a nightmare. Apparently not many consumers want it either.
I can't tell you the number of people I see looking at Windows 8 in places like Best Buy, shaking their heads, and walking away.

I've been in IT for over 20 years and I have never seen so many whiny bit@hes in my entire tenure. Don't use the new Metro Apps if you don't want to...IT ISN'T A REQUIREMENT! And how much time do you freaking people spent in the start menu anyway!!! Other than that it IS Windows 7...only better!!
