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.

Well, this is what I said a few days ago here:

I'm hoping some 3rd party fellas will quickly make shell replacements available so we can ditch the metro junk.


And lo and behold, at least a menu comes to life: http://www.stardock.com/products/start8/

Hehh, we got Start ;) Surely more to follow. I'm waiting for the first usable W7 shell replacement for W8 and we'll be fine.
