[NW] Microsoft explains decisions behind Windows 8's Start screen - Page 4

post #31 of 92
Honestly I really like Win 7 and don't want to change ( I know no one is forcing me to), but if Microsoft needs to keep a profit going, couldn't they keep putting out service packs and charge them like DLC's

Don't even say that! I would def. be on Win7 & Sp1 for the next 25 years.

I'll probably get crucified, but am I the only one that kinda likes the layout? I guess it's because I used WP7, but it looks really nice to me..

No way, there will be allways a need for Powerfull Dektop Pcs as Workstations or Gameing Systems, no nice UI will change that.

What changes Customer streams is APIs when theres alot cool fast **** for ur System then u Change nothing else makes u move to some new Icons.

Well atlast not me.

This sort of reminds me of the controversy over the GUI change in MS Office 2007. People got used to that. The same will happen here (although I'm sure there will be some custom UIs floating around just like there have for every other release).

I'd need to try it for myself before I can make a more informed opinion than that.

I like it, and MS is on point with the changes. Needs to be optimized, but I'm impressed.

I think you should get a menu bar home screen whenever you click the windows button. Here, you can have up to half the screen used as a menu. I'm not liking the menu bar at the bottom of the screen anymore. Though, I would like a clock to remain there or stuck in the top right corner of the applications' menu bar.

Windows 8 is a game changer.

Windows 7 is the new Windows XP.
