View Thread: Windows 8 flops, and Microsoft are to blame

    It seems to me that shoehorning a server context menu into a button built into the RDP client is basically saying "we know the Metro UI sucks for servers that are managed remotely, so we're going to take the RDP client, which is used for accessing both workstations and servers remotely, and kludge some macros into a button shoehorned into the titlebar that brings up some server stuff on the remote session." Doesn't seem very elegant, but I guess that's what you get when you try to provide some functionality for a server that has the wrong UI to begin with.
