Windows "Microsoft has been furiously ripping out legacy code in Windows 8 that would have enabled third parties to bring back the Start button, Start Menu, and other software bits that could have made this new OS look and work like its predecessor. In fact, I've seen that several well-known UI hacks that worked fine with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview are no longer functional in the coming Release Preview. And those with hopes that Microsoft would allow businesses, at least, to boot directly to the desktop should prepare for disappointment. That feature not only isn't happening, it's being removed from Windows Server 12 (Windows 8's stable mate) as well." When you buy a new machine later this year, you will use Metro, an environment wholly inferior, incomplete, and not at all ready to replace the traditional desktop in any way, shape, or form. Whether you like it or not.

Businesses can change office hours from 11 PM to 7 AM and adjust to that but that doesn't mean it's good or they should do that.

Windows 8 will be a disaster, even more than Vista was and I expect Windows 9 to arrive somewhere in 2013 with the return of the normal Windows Desktop.

You can't force people to use something that they don't like or don't want to use, even MS can't.
