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.

My G3 desktop is too large now to fit in to my more minimalistic computing area. I have a MacMini as the primary desktop, then everything else is either Windows or Mac laptops. I might dig up the Wallstreet though, as though it is stupidly large by today's standards, it's still a pretty cool machine. The battery still held a charge too last time I used it.

Why a Mac Mini and not an iMac? That would be even less stuff on your desk.

At work I'm trying to get as minimalistic as possible. I even created a WiFi network just for my iMac so I don't need a network cable. There is only one cable now, the power cable. Keyboard and trackpad are wireless.

We are switching to Microsoft Lync, then I can also get rid of my desk phone. That's the only object apart from the computer, keyboard and trackpad on my desk.

I have the cleanest desk of the entire company. Ironically the guy with the messiest desk sits across me.
