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.

Um yeah didn't Apple do that like 13 years ago or so? I mean really. MS again copies Apple then makes it sound like they are doing it better. Really?

Um, no. Apple didn't "do that". Apple ran a classic app in its own little standalone, carbonized VM. MS is running two side-by-side environments here.
