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.

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.

Touchscreens below 10", which is what metro is best fitted for, are a minority too. I understand that Windows 8 is Microsoft's attempt to break google's and apple's dominance in the tablet/smartphone market but by doing this they sacrifice the customers that just want a general purpose os to run on their desktop and laptop comupters.
