Ah, so if you're popular, you're not allowed to make changes again, ever. Got it.

There's differences between good changes and bad changes. Are you claiming that stuff like Metro gestures popping up all the time on touchpads, like in this case, is awesome? And if grand changes are introduced, there should be a fallback, like MS did it the last time. This time they aren't so confident to provide that ...

If you have to defend W8 by taking a fringe 1% thing like Ubuntu as example of something, then W8 spells trouble.
