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.

Will the new direction of Windows eventually push unsatisfied hardcore users who are attached to the desktop paradigm toward OS X? Apple has traditionally poached less savvy users, but now their OS seems conservative even with Lion/Mountain Lion and the trend toward iOSification.

Have any Windows users here thought about moving to OS X?

I can't say I have considered that. The times I've used OSX I didn't like it and I don't see that changing. Sure, I could likely get around and do most of the stuff I do already, but I see no reason to. Also, I'm a gamer and most of my games do not work under OSX, so that's already enough of a reason not to go there in and of itself.
