Windows And thus, Microsoft bites itself in its behind with Metro. As you all surely know by now, the Metro environment in Windows 8, and its accompanying applications, need to follow a relatively strict set of rules and regulations, much like, say, applications on iOS. For one type of application, Metro has already proven to be too restrictive and limited: web browsers. Microsoft has had to define a separate application class [.docx] - aside from Metro and desktop applications - just to make third party web browsers possible for Windows 8.

Windows 8 is the O.S. that WILL push me towards Linux. Enough is enough!


Windows 7 will be around for a long time to come. I certainly plan to ignore 8 and keep on using 7 indefinitely.

I'll be keeping up to date with Linux though, prepared for the switch if/when Windows no longer meets my needs, and I'm saying that as someone who definitely isn't a Linux fan...
