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.

so... cutting all other comments and OS takes...

I installed windows 8 (in a VM running it fullscreen) and started the weather program ( gadget?)

Result: 30" screen filled with the weather instead of a little lets say 2 by 1 inch little window in the top-right... while I have the rest of the screen left to see other stuff.

For sale: 30" monitor... looking for a 9" instead like my MacSE in 1995

nuff said ;)

Basically you used Windows 8, then made some judgement after two minutes of using it and decided you hated it ...

Well done you are a moron.

this Moron has been using Windows in all sorts of versions since 3.0, Linux since it was 0.99 (slackware)... Mac OS since 6.0... been playing with the Windows 8 dev preview since September 2011 and fiddling with the new JDK... of course based on a single post YOU who have no doubt super-judging skills are free ro call me a moron... I probably am even paying attention.

Yours

PS: anyone else .. please tell me why I need to see all apps maximised on 30" ?
