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.

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).


What are you talking about?

The next thing was finding apps to launch took a lot of work that was not necessary.


Apparently typing the application name is difficult, the start page has the same functionality of that of the start menu in 7 ... it is just displayed differently.

Lastly and intrestingly I see lots of bad rendering gadgets. IE is extremely not usable. Even Lenovo's support page is not rendered correctly.


Lenovo's website probably isn't built properly if it can't render in IE 10 properly.
