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.

Actually most people in the office think it is pretty cool, and we work in an office of 100+ people and only 4 are developers.

Of course cool does not equal usable and/or good. Remember that there are many people in the world who think that the Kardashians are 'cool'. Those who flock to 'cool' are the fanboys and the idiots of the world.

No maybe it doesn't, but it shows that any opinions on here are quite niche.
