Windows

Two changes supposedly coming to the next version of Windows, according to veteran Paul Thurrott:

Metro apps running in windows on the desktop. As you can today with third-party utilities such as ModernMix, the next version of Windows will let users optionally run Metro apps in floating windows on the desktop.

Start menu. After bringing back the Start button in Windows 8.1, Microsoft will take the next logical step in the next Windows version and make the Start menu available as an option. It's possible this will appear only on those product versions that support the desktop.

This would be Microsoft admitting they got Windows 8 all wrong.

Everyone talks about it being borked as a fact when it is their opinion.

So I dispute that it is borked. I have never seen any data to support the notion.

You talk about it being fine as a fact when it is your opinion

You are really upset aren't you?

Look you can do clever parodies all you like. The point is that there is no data i.e. statistical data you can link that says the Office Ribbon has bad usability.

I have said this in the other comment tree, I am quite willing to look at data that doesn't support my opinion. There has been none presented by you or anyone else.
