Windows

Two changes supposedly coming to the next version of Windows, according to veteran Paul Thurrott:

Metro apps running in windows on the desktop. As you can today with third-party utilities such as ModernMix, the next version of Windows will let users optionally run Metro apps in floating windows on the desktop.

Start menu. After bringing back the Start button in Windows 8.1, Microsoft will take the next logical step in the next Windows version and make the Start menu available as an option. It's possible this will appear only on those product versions that support the desktop.

This would be Microsoft admitting they got Windows 8 all wrong.

The ribbons in Outlook are fantastic at hiding commonly used functionality, forcing you to poke around at different "tabs" in the ribbon toolbar. I sometimes just find it easier to use OWA.



Just spend a few hours using the Eclipse based Lotus Notes and you will be crying for Outlook in no time.
