Windows You can say what you will about Windows Phone and Windows 8's Metro interface (I refuse to drop that name) - it's inefficient, unpopular, cumbersome, beautiful, ugly, organised, clean, limiting - but there's one thing we can all agree on: it's unique and distinctive. CNet has published a profile of Microsoft's Albert Shum, the man behind Metro, and he highlights what I think is at the very core of Microsoft's problems in mobile right now.

I have my power button set to suspend in Win7 laptop, and if I want to shut down (or restart) I explicitly tell my machine to do so through Start/Shut down/Restart buttons.

Setting Win7 to act like this is a matter of seconds, even for less experienced users. If Win8 is making it hard to setup the same functionality than I wonder who is "doing it wrong", me or usability expert at Microsoft.
