Windows "A senior Samsung Electronics executive said Friday the launch of Windows 8 has failed to bolster demand for PCs and he does not expect the PC industry to rebound soon." Of course, Samsung and other OEMs could've, you know, built better computers. Just a suggestion.

I had to do a Google search to figure out how to log in. It turns out one has to maneuver the mouse to "flick up" the lower half of the Welcome screen to reveal the login prompt.


Hm. I just pressed space button.

Same. To be fair to the OP though -- this shouldn't be the case.

I've also seen people who stare at the lock screen blankly and ask me how to get the thing to go to the login prompt.

If everyone used Windows Phone this wouldn't be an issue ;)

I have a Windows Phone, but I did stare a while at the screen wondering why people say Windows 8 boots so quick and it didn't appear to be doing on my computer.

It's a desktop OS that is the only one that has 2 levels of lock screen.(even iOS and Android give you the option to enter your password immediately after you physically unlock)
It's the "Press Ctrl+Salt+Del to unlock" of unlock screens. While sometimes useful, should be an optional thing.
