Windows Desktop users deserve a significant rethink of the Windows 8 gaffes and omissions for the next version of Windows, writes InfoWorld's Woody Leonhard, offering 10 must-have features for Windows 9. From a "Get out of hell" modal dialog to prevent unwanted jumping to Metro, to a Control Panel that actually controls the kinds of things you would want a Control Panel to control, it's 'due time we diehards speak out.' What's your feedback for the Windows dev team as it puts together its Windows 9 (or "Windows Blue"?) specs.

Fully agreed. I've installed it a week ago, using it on 24" screen and it is basically improved Windows 7. Only time I see Metro is when starting an app - hit Windows key, hello Metro, start typing, hit enter, goodbye Metro. Time to adjust from Windows 7 to Windows 8 is 10 seconds.

Whatever is the real reason people are bitching about it so much, it escapes me.

It is because they hate Microsoft for any reason they can make up.

Unlike you Shillus Maximus, who loves Microsoft to the level of a fatal attraction, does Microsoft pay you overtime?
