Windows For weeks - if not months - I've been trying to come up with a way to succinctly and accurately explain why, exactly, Windows 8 rubs me the wrong way, usability-wise. I think I finally got it.

Then don't update, I don't know what else you want people to say.


People who do not want windows 8 want Microsoft to change it to their liking. That is what they want. They want a company to listen to its users. Is that a bad thing?

Yes. Apparently it's a bad thing not to react like a herd of sheep and let a monopolistic megacorporation ram a giant dildo with glass shards from a shattered Windows up your ass. We're supposed to just blindly bend over and take it all, admit defeat on our part and that Microsoft is always right, and just move on--using Windows 8 and whatever else gets pushed at us for a couple hundred bucks on the upgrade treadmill--whether we like it or not.

Because, you know, the Almighty Corporations can never, ever be wrong, right? I mean, they're run by some supreme beings, not just lowly imperfect mere mortal human beings such as ourselves. They know what is best for us, the planet, and the entire universe.
