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.

But you aren't everyone. A fact you seem have difficulty in grasping.

WTF!? I've frequently said I'm only talking about myself and not everyone! That post even categorically says "when I start to struggle"

And I even wrote an entire paragraph in the other fork about how this is just my personal preference.

I really couldn't be making my position on this more clear; this is my personal opinion and preference. I'm not trying to speak on behalf of everyone.
