Windows For weeks - if not months - I've been trying to come up with a way to succinctly and accurately explain why, exactly, Windows 8 rubs me the wrong way, usability-wise. I think I finally got it.

Long story short, it'll never make you happy, and they don't have to

24inch triple monitor setups are a minority in the Windows ecosystem and trade offs were made.

Real world statistics indicate that Windows 8 is engineered for precisely the target audience and specs of the market it hopes to capture.

With 3 (or even 2) monitors, the classic Windows desktop is always shown, so your shortcut is unneeded.

This would actually make Win8 less bothersome for super -power users.
