Windows Desktop users deserve a significant rethink of the Windows 8 gaffes and omissions for the next version of Windows, writes InfoWorld's Woody Leonhard, offering 10 must-have features for Windows 9. From a "Get out of hell" modal dialog to prevent unwanted jumping to Metro, to a Control Panel that actually controls the kinds of things you would want a Control Panel to control, it's 'due time we diehards speak out.' What's your feedback for the Windows dev team as it puts together its Windows 9 (or "Windows Blue"?) specs.

Worst Move!

Two days ago I installed W8 on my Thinkpad. I was kinda excited about the tiles.
I saw redundancy between control-panel, apps like IE, and eventually the interface (I have a pc and mouse not a tablet).
The next thing was finding apps to launch took a lot of work that was not necessary.
Lastly and intrestingly I see lots of bad rendering gadgets. IE is extremely not usable. Even Lenovo's support page is not rendered correctly.
Linux users hear me out: This thing is much worst that gnome3 and unity. Much Much Much Worst.
Its a shame, because at-least on interface Microsoft never screwed up this badly. Win Phone 8 that I saw was actually usable but this is not.
