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.

Mac OS X's Classic mode

If I don't recall it wrong, Mac OS X's Classic mode, was more like an virtual machine of Mac OS 9 inside Mac OS X.

When you loaded a MacOS 8 o 9 app on OS X you will had to wait for a while for the classic mode to run.
