Windows Windows 8 will have both the new Metro-style applications and user interface and the traditional Windows 7 desktop for legacy applications, which kind of runs like an application. Since legacy applications have to be recompiled to run on ARM anyway, it's always been a bit unclear if the ARM version of Windows 8 would include the legacy desktop at all - even Microsoft itself confirmed it wasn't sure yet. Microsoft bloggers Mary-Jo Foley and Paul Thurrot have fresh rumours that Microsoft has now made the decision to remove the legacy desktop from the ARM version.

I love the way you put this, Thom and I completely agree with your points which I find highly accurate.

I would be as irritated as you, but - thankfuly - I left Windows many years ago and I'm now BSD/Linux/Haiku/Solaris user and I actually see no need to run Windows in any form never, ever again. I don't see the point of running MacOS too, since it doesn't give me anything more than I already have [I actually get much, much more with tools I choosed to use].


Cool Story Bro.
