[NW] Windows 8 screenshots of build 8220 leak, new info surfaces - Page 5

post #41 of 102
You guys act like Metro is suddenly your only option. It will undoubtedly be easily turned off. With Metro on it also seems like the "traditional" desktop is only there for non-Metro apps, considering it doesn't look very well integrated into the UI.

So many people don't realize that Metro can be turned off.

You guys are all old men afraid of change. Metro UI on phones is FANTASTIC, this way it works with both mouse and touch support.
Nobody is making you upgrade to 8. God 90% of you are conceited kids.

Pretty much this (although I prefer my Windows 7 for my sig rig). I cannot wait for a Windows 8 powered tablet...

And WP 7.5 is pretty much awesome!

Metro has replaced the old start menu and new windows 8 builds removed the start menu from their code....

Jesus.

Quote for truth, 100x.

They are advertising the touch screen capabilities the most because tablets are pretty much the new and emerging market.

Classic windows 7 is available.

Many other improvements for desktop users are included, like less RAM usage, search, etc.

This. I heard complaints from Win98 users about XP, complaints about Vista, and Windows 7, and now this.

People not liking change is a fact of life. How many old folks do you know that like new music, or dress in current fashion trends? I try to embrace change, so I won't end up a grumpy old man someday. Especially in my profession, programming, most older programmers don't adapt to the changes in technology from when they first started and end up not being able to keep up with younger programmers, I've seen this personally with multiple older programmers. Embrace change, or you'll find yourself extinct.

No, it's not that we don't like change, we just don't like garbage being thrown at us. We don't want to have to waste another 1-2 Gigs of storage on a UI.

Metro is the worst UI I've ever seen, and I've been around a long time. I don't want it, don't want to install it, and I want my damn start button back. Moving to another screen completely is a pointless, waste of time, resources, and space.

I may buy it. But it's not a must-own which makes me like this new Windows. biggrin.gif

I tested W8 and I did not like it one bit, don't like the system they are trying to make, they should allows us to go desktop mode of windows 7.
