Windows Now that Windows 8 has gone gold, Microsoft can move on to other things. With Windows 8, the most important of these is probably to make sure people know how to actually use it. Metro is filled to the brim with hard-to-discover features, but Microsoft has a plan. Will it be enough?

X is the least of anyone's problems, its just become the whipping boy of the Linux crowd.

There are serious deficiencies in the Linux Desktop, and KDE frankly does almost nothing to alleviate any of these. The UX is absolutely emarassing and its reached the point where I'm certain they're joking. This can't be something they seriously put out.

Almost every platform, concept, or paradigm they've introduced has been second rate and detrimental to their own progress. Its like they've been jerking the chain of their userbase for half a decade while they try this stupid ass science experiment.

Gnome, ironically, looks like a more sensible approach, just completely without product direction. Its almost tragic.

Yup.
