In all the Win 8 discussions here with the eightiesfans I still don't get it why a unified GUI across all devices is a good thing.
Yeah, a PC, a smartphone, a laptop, a tablet and a game console are all computers after all. so what? Where's the argument in this that leads to the conclusion that they all need a unified GUI?
It's like saying that cars, space rockets, ships and trains must all have the same control scheme because they are all just vehicles.
I've never looked at a smart phone and thought "gee, I wish I could run only one full screen program at a time on my multi-gig RAM PC with a 22" screen too, and keep my arms stretched all the time to smudge it with my fatty fingers. This would totally rule!"
