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.

The feature I really want is the ability to use screen scaling in the reverse direction to current when mirroring.

The current behaviour enlarges the smaller screen's contents for the larger display. This is better for readability, but when using a touch device and a high-res external display (surface RT and 1080p tv) I want the TV showing content at native resolution. So I want to be able to shrink the image for the smaller display. While I might not be able to read text as easily on the display I am interacting with, I would still be able to use (for example) video controls without issue.
