You don't get what's so hard? Fine here are a few tidbits:

1) want to use the default OS supplied email client? Fullscreen app in your face
2) Want to view a PDF file? Another fullscreen app in your face
3) The same for calendar and web search.

These are just a few that popped in my face just in the first 10 minutes of using the "wonder OS". It is annoying. No, scratch that. It is pissing me off. Makes me scream. I do not want that on my friggin desktop. Nor do I want to install other applications to do the above when there are already programs with the same functionality on my system. There is no good reason why the PDF viewer and an email program and an IDE can't stand side by side on the same screen (provided the screen is big enough and it usually is for desktops)

All this so that MS can push their idiotic agenda. The "pie in the sky OS" to magically solve all their problems (like Ballmer being a moron).

They (MS) have not learned anything. In a NYT interview Mrs whatshername even insults desktop users by saying "we need to learn faster". WTF? It's not me that made Windows 8 a retarded OS, it's them. Don't shift your problems on to us.

Please MS, less marketing talk and more work fixing the mess you've made.
