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.

It will be great for 24" and smaller screens.


Smaller? Maybe. 24? No, it isn't. It's quite annoying. Everything fullscreen on 1900x1200 is crazy and proper multitasking (I'm talking user, not OS - the latter is in itself another level of pain for metro apps) is a pain. Yet, most of those "people" everyone is talking about will probably go along with it, and happily. They always do.
