Windows For Microsoft, the traditional desktop is old news. It's on its way out, it's legacy, and the harder they claim the desktop has equal rights, the sillier it becomes. With companies, words are meaningless, it's actions that matter, and here Microsoft's actions tell the real story. The company has announced the product line-up for Visual Studio 11, and the free Express can no longer be used to create desktop applications. Message is clear.

And how the f*ck am I supposed to be using my IRC, e-mail client, browser, music player, torrent downloader etc. when I can't even multi-task properly?

Microsoft and everyone else with their shitty pro-Metro stance can say what they want, but you just cannot answer a simple damned question.

No thanks. Power users who want to get real, serious work done will stick with Windows 7, and most will definitely just switch to another platform. Enough with this toy interface bullsh!t.


You're showing your ignornace with that comment.

Oh, spare me the "power user" crap. One thing I've come to understand recently is that self-proclaimed "power users" are probably the whiniest babies on the planet. And ironically, "power users" tend to spew the most ignorant nonsense when it comes to tech. I guess it's because they think they know everything and so tend to make authoritative statements more than others. Self-proclaimed "power users" aren't nearly as "tech savvy" as they claim to be.

"Power users". lol Give me a break. lol

MollyC,


"Oh, spare me the 'power user' crap..."

What's wrong with being a power user?

It almost sounds like you are blaming power users for having advanced needs rather than blaming metro for not meeting those needs.

Lol, lol, lol. <--- What are we, 12 years old? I'm not even going to waste my time arguing with someone who clearly has no more intellectual capacity than an ostrich. Enjoy your Metro crap while the rest of us use something superior!
