@BitFlipper: Windows 8 was designed when Microsoft and the World were in a blind panic about tablets taking over the world so they made decisions based on that.
The truth is that the world has chosen HTML as the cheapest and easiest technology to build applications, pretty much every Technology Director I know defaults to HTML as opposed to ever considering native applications, as board room meetings are always about being cost effective, especially in the enterprise. It does not matter how bad an HTML application is, if you are paying someone to use it, they will use it, and oftentimes never complain.
wastingtimewithforums raison d'etre is perennially to never ever be constructive or objective, except to say Windows is (add derogatory term), I know personal attacks are not in the spirit of this forum, and beneath someone who has been a member for so long, but wasteofspace is what I see when he posts.
A recent internet meme reads "Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution"
