Windows As you may have seen, David's been taking care of OSNews for a few days because I'm quite busy with work. Still, there's one thing I'd like to talk about: the desktop mode in Windows 8. I wish I could've added this to the first impressions article, but I only arrived at this conclusion yesterday: desktop mode in Windows 8 is Microsoft's equivalent of Mac OS X's Classic mode.

I think it's time for Microsoft to make a dedicated work-oriented operating system. Of course, Windows 8 doesn't look work-friendly IMO.

Instead, Windows 8 looks very gamer-friendly.

That's Windows 7. Which is why a ton of enterprises upgraded to it.
