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.

Windows 7. No significant amount of people are going to switch to Linux because of Windows 8. Vista didn't either. If they don't like 8, they'll use 7.

This meme really needs to stop. People don't want Linux. Deal with it. They want Windows or Mac OS X. Harsh and sad, but that's the reality supported by the facts.
