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.

I would really like to know what intrinsic property of windows 8 makes "serious" development impossible. I think there is huge potential for developers with windows 8 because of the live tiles.

I have been using it on my laptop for over a week and my biggest problem with it is that I do not have more metro apps.
