Huge problem is Windows 7 and aero looks so elegant when tweaked. Windows 8 looked horrible and windows 10 is the same. Its butt ugly on a PC. I can see you need cut down UI for tablets and phones. But on my desktop I want to too look good.
Worst feature is white background windows and no usable way to change it.
G'day. Love the show. Laura's personality always breaks a smile on my face.
Xbox resale is very bad when you consider the competitions sharing and resale are unrestricted. People who watch money when buying games may switch because of this alone.
As a desktop Windows user only. I'm not going to repeat what all desktop users are screaming other than to say bring on update 8.3 where the start menu and metro apps are on the desktop in windows where we want them.
Im a big fan of the Xbox One and may well get a console for the first time just for the TV / Media functionality if it pans out how I hope. For gaming I cant bring myself to leave the mouse and keyboard that suit my games far better. I am glad that consoles have moved closer to PC's so that cross platform games now will have more access to use the storage and memory available on PC's that the last gen console where crippled with.
Sorry for the negativity. I love the show and have watched it from the start. Microsoft has just made some controversial choices that will have to platy out now.
In regards to Windows 8. I would like to put out a man vs desktop challenge to Gov. Do an show using Windows 8 on your Laptop and see if all the viewers agree the desktop / laptop expirence is better now.
You can most likely sence I do not like windows 8 as a desktop user.
Can you dog food your product for one show ?
I expect you will need LOTS of metro blocks or more likely rely on text search to get to apps. I am finding it very hard to beat the windows 7 desktop enviroment in windows 8 preview.
