Microsoft One of the major lacking features in the newest Office: no Metro applications. In fact, the only reason Windows RT has a desktop at all is because the Office team was unable to create Metro applications in time for the release of Windows RT. I often thought this was a classic case of two important divisions within Microsoft not getting along and not being aligned, but now that I have my own Surface RT, I'm starting to realise that there's a far simpler, and thus more likely, explanation: Metro is simply not ready for anything serious - or for anything at all, really.

there is also the matter that a lot of times "usability" is confused with "stuff I'm used to"

I'd agree in general. Some people really hate any change. With the smart phone industry, I'm really amazed that so many people have completely switch operating systems multiple times.

Dumb phone => feature phone => blackberry => iphone => android.

It kind of makes me optimistic about the human race.
