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.

Which is exactly what I did back in 2006, around the time Vista was released (hint: not a coincidence). But the customization wasn't really one of the main reasons for switching.


Oh goody for you. Unless you had ultra compelling reason to switch (you don't) ... please don't waste my time pretending to know how the latest Windows works.


I only said that the Start screen was specifically designed and optimized for touchscreens, not that it doesn't work at all without them. There is a difference.


So lets get this right. I just said something that invalidated your opinion on the subject because your statement is an opinion.

The Start screen clearly works because you can use it is. If you want to discuss usability studies that is a different subject entirely.
