There I fixed that for ya:
Remember. If I shouted loudly that keyboards were supported well in Windows8, and some other Microsoft apologist reposted it, and a few journalists and irate, Microsoft Kool-Aid drinking blog-posts later everyone believes that Microsoft is including awesome the keyboard-input, that doesn't make it true. Microsoft is ditching legacy applications because they are trying to emulate Apples success but don't realize that ship has already sailed. WinRT won't be replacing Win32 in the next decade but don't tell Microsoft that. They're too busy chasing Apple's rainbows and unicorns than to be bothered by their needs of their customers.
The reality is that W8 is designed for touch. Keyboard + mouse support is an attempt to approximate that. Microsoft has done a pretty poor job there and by providing a metro experience that is forced upon users every time they hit the start button that it creates a source of pain for the millions of every day desktop users. They've taken away the visual discover and made everything take more clicks, more uncovering, more squinting. The task strip (or what ever you call it) is a prime example. No "x" close UI (like Metro IE has for its tabs), The thumbnails are too small on anything smaller than a 12" display, no label or tooltip to tell you what the * you are looking at, and it's problematic on multiple monitor setups.
I know, I know... Like every good dictator, "well they don't have to use it". And IMO that's probably what's going to happen.
