What we are talking about here are the basic mechanics of the Windows 8 user experience. I might be incorrect, but I'm not sure that any external user input was acted upon during the public developmental stages of eight.

First past the post voting seems like a bad way to refine an OS, but if you don't like the way Windows is going, don't buy it.

If you want to try something truly awful, try Windows 8 on a non-touch Windows 8 laptop.
