Windows A long - very long - blog post justifying all the ideas and choices behind Windows 8. We've all been here before, but it's nice to have it all summed up once again for easy reference in case we hit another yes/no debate on Windows 8 and keyboard and mouse. Anywho, the most interesting bit is that Microsoft has updated the theme of the traditional desktop, flattening it to achieve a very nice look.

ngcmac's concern isn't about a "window manager" or being able to choose one (which Windows has allowed forever anyway), after all, the Windows 7 desktop is still in Windows 8. His/her complaint appears to be about the StartMenu. But there are already available 3rd-party StartMenus for Windows 8, which one can install as easily as choosing a "window manager" for Linux.
