Windows Paul Allen, one of Microsoft's co-founders who left the company long ago, has posted on his blog about his experiences with Windows 8. He (surprise) likes it, but he does note a number of shortcomings and oddities - all of which are spot-on. However, he fails to address the core issue with Windows 8: it's forcing users to drill a small hole in the wall with a belt sander.

You have a point but if Microsoft is trying to push some kind of "cultural-tech" change they must force users otherwise it people will continue to go back to the Desktop GUI.

I remember back in the early 90's Windows had this secondary UI or a Software on top of Windows GUI that looked like a book I remember I was very little and it was the only thing I easily use, handling the regular Windows UI was too much for me.
