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.

Two points

1 HUD is basically non existent in 12.04 it's a feature you can try if you wish. However, when fully up and running it might be good, certainly better than having to Google where something is on the ribbon.

2 People may use a Unity Desktop if they used to using it on there TVs etc.

It's a dangerous thing to look into the future an predict what will happen.
