[Engadget]Microsoft unveils Windows 8 - Page 18

post #171 of 239
I like that Microsoft is trying out new ideas. I think this is very innovative. BUT...That is not business friendly by any means. I wonder how much this change will be effecting us the power users/enthusiasts. Hopefully they include a way to change the UI to a classic mode.

i like it.

i mean i wonder how they'll graft compatibility in for both sides (traditional and new) but it could work well...

as long as that tile interface works with mouse and keyboard well, that is...

Wh- what happened?

I just remember seeing this video and then I blacked out.

Why is there a lump on my forehead -and why is there blood on my desk?

(In case you didn't catch on, I don't agree with this path Microsoft has chosen.)

It took 18 pages for a reasonable response.

It seems that people already rejected what isn't finished and haven't tried yet but I guess it can't be helped since it's already the language here.

services.msc

Metro UI : startup type(disabled).

Done. You guys are a bunch of cry babies. Windows 8 will still have good UI changes to explorer.exe and other things.

Regardless it is a promising tablet ui. My GF may have it as the main UI but power users will still like mouse, keyboard and taskbar. That's not going anywhere.

Tablets is the most useless product category ever,
Why would I need to carry around a device too large to fit inside my pocket when I can do everything it does and more on my phone

You guys must realize that Microsoft is catering not to the small enthusiast market, but to the much wider and broader non-enthusiast consumer market. It's all about the money, and they're just trying to maximize its income. Not everybody likes the nitty gritty like we here at ocn.

Having said that, if the years ahead are going to be filled with touch based devices, i'd love the UI. The place i disagree with the director guy about, is that the metro UI working with mouse/keyboard. I've tried the wp7 emulator maximized to full screen and several other mods that try to emulate this tile based UI. They just don't provide a very user friendly experience for m/k.

This thread is hilarious. I think maybe 10 people who posted actually watched the video and read the article. Everyone else looked at the youtube video preview and went, "EW TOUCH UI, NO THANKS.
