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.

"I have to endure Linux on an everyday basis for work so I think I'm a pretty good judge on usability.

I installed Linux on my work PC as I was sick of having to "endure" Windows on a daily basis.

I guess your definition of usability is actually just user preference.

Obviously yeah I'm just speaking for my self (and quite a few of my fellow colleagues). We use Linux because it's obviously better suited for our work and it's awesome at that. However for anything else it's a bit of a hassle.
