  • Windows 8.1: Interview with Antoine Leblond

    When the Windows 8 "metro style interface" appeared with tiles, a lot of people were annoyed.

    With so many people complaining that the helpful Start Button had disappeared (along with the easy access to anything - that we used to enjoy), Microsoft could have just left it.

    However, for some reason I still can't fathom, MS decided to make a "fake" button that doesn't actually DO anything.

    - a direct slap to the face of real, valid and (supposedly) valued customers that had a valid concern.

    Windows 8:  starts up to metro interface.
    Windows 8.1: gives the people their start button back that takes them to the metro interface.

    Who will be taking responsibility for the insult?

    - conspicuously "missing" from this video.

    Interesting info - however I'm curious about when you were showing the BooksController, and "viewed source" only to find no information other than the table and javascript.

    I would think that it would be better if search engines could see all that juicy content?
