careful Thom, posting about how bad win8 is might cause someone on this forum calling you a moron...
been toying with last years preview and again the 2nd preview, I just don't get it what MS is trying to achieve :/ My main gripe is still the forcing apps to go full screen (or 1/3 versus 2/3)
The reasoning for "full screen" is:
Most computers sold nowadays are laptops (or smaller), and that phenomenon will only increase. These laptops (and smaller devices) have small screens relative to desktop computers, and because of that most users use apps in full screen mode. So Microsoft is targetting that user scenario, yes, at the expense of lesser-used scenarios. I'm paraphrasing what I've read on the "Building Windows 8" blog.
thanks for that link, good read really.
but, to use an analogy: it's not because so many people go to MacDonalds, that I should like it :/
I'm actually in the market for a 15" laptop.. been amazed to see that the majority now have 1366x768 res.. makes me think I'm back in 1990 when IBM introduced 1024x768
