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.

Just like Microsoft stubbornly insisted on and ultimately decided to leave out basic, expected functionality for desktop users? It goes both ways.


Sorry MacOSX doesn't have a start menu and mac users just do fine.

The start menu really isn't expected functionality. Lets ignore the start screen works exactly the same via keyboard as the old start menu just for arguments sake.

OSX does not have a "Start Menu" and manages just fine ... in fact Windows 8 I would argue is more like MacOSX than Win 7 (even with the Dock/Taskbar hybrid).
