Windows And there we are - the Surface Pro reviews are in. Reading through them all, there's clearly a common theme, and it's not particularly positive. We're a few months in now, so I think we can finally call it: Windows 8 and Surface are the wrong way to go.

Most people here complain about the whole thing being inconsistent. But in reality, they're complaining about the lack of apps and the mediocre ones included.


Ok so when I'm complaining about two IE's that switch back in forth inconsistently or two interfaces that inconsistently switch between tasks I'm actually complaining about application compatibility. Right.

Or how about in Surface where you click "Word" in Metro and you get dumped to the desktop which then auto-launches Win32 Word. I'd say that is inconsistent.

Windows 8 is a piece of shit OS as seen by the consistently failed attempts by people like yourself to deflect and delegitimize criticism. I work in enterprise and everyone I work with thinks it is a bad joke but please continue trying to flail and defend this stupid idea.

I just refuse to take people who complain about this serious. It is really not a big deal.

There are plenty of valid criticisms of Windows 8, this one is one of the more baseless ones I've come across.

So your screen fades into the Desktop when you run Office (a Desktop app). Big deal.

Indeed, because constantly switching between two different interfaces on a PC or laptop is not at all inefficient.

What's your favorite ice cream flavor, because I am pretty sure I won't like it.

You work in an enterprise? Then why your reply is a joke as much as your claim that Win8 is a joke? Your enterprise has to have 5 employees, you, and your 4 IT friends probably, who can't even sort out, what Windows 8 is, sorry.

I really wonder, how 3 ppl can raise your post score. If you can't sort out, how to use Metro/Desktop, then you should probably stop using a computer. Well, I work in an enterprise too, and first thing is - users don't care at all. For them, Metro just provides them with sorted-out icons to start their apps (yes, we replace Metro ones with Desktop ones). In fact, if we ask, the transition was absolutly flawless for all ppl we ask, noone raised any problems, so either most of ppl in your enterprise are extremly stupid, or our ppl are extremly technically savy. Decide for yourself :-)

You work in an enterprise?


IN American, every company is an "Enterprise" and every enterprise is the global leader in their field.
