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.

Oh, to be able to +1 a comment after posting in a thread. ;) You've pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Metro on the desktop is nothing more than an attempt to force development of Metro apps that can be used on the tablet versions of Windows 8.
