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.

You miss the part where I don't give a rats ass what "the market" uses. People switching to a variant of Linux or not ranks somewhere between what Kobe Bryant ate for breakfast and Rush Limbaugh's opinion on... well anything really on the don't-care-0-meter. That's because it has *zero* effect on me whatsoever.

What is interesting is why people go out of their way to defend the status quo.

Must be pretty important if you're taking the time to write about how much you don't care!

People are sheep who go with whatever's installed on their drive when they buy their computer. Always have been, always will be.

How's the view from your ivory tower?

No more or less important than anything else that's been said on these posts. I do have a certain... aversion to being misconstrued as a *nix fanboy though.

As for ivory towers, leave them to the Eloi. I'm quite comfy in my cave with the rest of the morlocks.
