yeah even though ms is new to the touch game, i actually prefer their touch offerings to apples. i have tried the apple touch mouse and i think it sucks. it's just not ergonomic, because it has no "arch" to it. this new mouse on the other hand seems pretty slick (referring to the top one). it has a real arch to it.

but im not sure that any touch mouse will really be suitable for gaming, but for other uses they should be damn slick

I like how the assumption is that people haven't tried it... Everyone I've spoken to has tried it properly, still hates it:thumb:. Where do people get this productivity word they keep throwing around from?


Is that the new buzz word that's caught on your make it seem worth it?

Because the assumption is true for the most part. Even in that recent Windows 8 forum poll, the forum dedicated to Windows 8, only 25% of respondents have actually used Windows 8.

As for productivity, it depends on the person and how well (or unwell) they are able to integrate the metro style into their workflow. I don't think it improved my productivity any, and there are some things that I don't think are implemented well, but they're mostly just minor stuff to me, and don't impact my day to day use. The start screen has grown on me, and I wouldn't want to switch back to the start menu.

Your negative attitude towards Windows 8 may have impacted the people you know on their opinion of Windows 8. I know there was a different user who said he showed Windows 8 to his friends and family with a positive attitude, and they have all liked it.

No, I'm talking IT professionals who don't want to touch it with a barge pole. It doesn't increase productivity and the "start screen" absolutely blows. My negativity towards Windows 8 hasn't affected them since they reached their decision independent of me.

Of course people with a "positive attitude" or "positive bias" will rub that off onto their friends.

And 60% of polls are unreliable 30% where 90% of the data is 20% made up.

I personally do most of my work in the desktop area on Windows 7 and Windows 8 simply got in the way of that. The Metro interface was annoying and clunky. For me, it decreased productivity and just pissed me off. I didn't want to mess around with it getting it to work for me. Going from Windows Vista to Windows 7 was seemless with the only real thing to learn was the taskbar (buttons instead of named bars). Windows 8 throws all that on it's head and forces you to learna ridiculous tablet interface.

So basically, you're saying just because you and your IT friends find Metro annoying, unproductive, and generally gets in the way, everyone has to see it the same way?

Seems legitimate.

If anything, you and your friends' opinions are even less accurate than these polls due to the significantly smaller and limited sample size.

Yes, because the opinion of several programming/computer science lecturers/professors should be disregarded easily. These people have published books on their subjects - but that has no weight on their opinion of Windows 8.

And no I'm not saying everyone should see it the same way, just that I value the opinion of my peers and the people teaching me computer science subjects over people on the internet who want to find reasons to like it and claim "it increased productivity" and other claims that are extremely hard to quantify.

No offense, it's just that I wanted to like it. I went in with an open mind and excitement, can came out of the other side pissed off and disheartened. The more I used it the more it annoyed me. I gave it a fair chance and many others did too and still didn't like it. I'd be 100% Pro-windows 8 if I could stop Metro from ever showing and always having my desktop interface, but I can't and MS actively stopped it. Pretty crap move for them to pull
