Windows The Verge published a video demonstrating how desktop mode and Office 2013 - a desktop application - work on Windows RT, the ARM version of Windows 8. The video showed a desktop mode that clearly didn't work well for touch, and even Office 2013, which has a rudimentary touch mode built-in, didn't work properly either. It looked and felt clunky, often didn't respond properly, and even showed touch lag.

Member since:

But then this whole argument can be circumvented depending on what you consider being "pro video".

To answer your first question, yes I work in entertainment/film/music.

Anyways, this whole thing started because of a blanket claim about linux being extremely popular in film & audio (no, that isn't a direct quote). Of course there are explicit environments (as you described) where it may be preferable, but to make the claim as a blanket for the entire industry is simply absurd.

Just looking at the "video" comment since I don't work in audio. I have absolutely no say in that or any knowledge about it's pipe and the normal setup at a recording studio

You may as well have antennas coming out of your head if you want to go into a recording studio talking about linux. I suppose saying that will attract petition from the lurking bedroom studio "pros".

Also, my comments are in response to the original & outlandish blanket claim. We can bring up specific use cases and debate it all day but there will never be a winner. The fields are vast and so are the opinions and setups. That being the case it's best to focus on the original claim and apply KISS.
