Windows As you may have seen, David's been taking care of OSNews for a few days because I'm quite busy with work. Still, there's one thing I'd like to talk about: the desktop mode in Windows 8. I wish I could've added this to the first impressions article, but I only arrived at this conclusion yesterday: desktop mode in Windows 8 is Microsoft's equivalent of Mac OS X's Classic mode.

A lot is riding on Metro in Windows 8.

A losing bet unless it is their intention to force the corporate client base into Linux while catering to the non-technical user, serious development, be it software, hardware or any other kind of engineering will not be possible on Windows 8 without a major loss of productivity.
