You really think I would enjoy pinning 30 or so programs to my task bar to avoid the start screen? Seriously, are you comparing a tablet to a PC? YES the touch interface works. I use a PC NO TOUCH SCREEN NO BUENO for windows 8.
What I'm saying is this. I have a bunch of apps I use irregularly. I also watch a lot of tv shows on my pc. I don't want to stop watching a show just to open up a little monitor app, or check on other programs to mess around with while I'm watching my shows, just because Microsoft decided an in your face, full screen, distraction of a start screen was a good idea.
It's GARBAGE on a computer. On a tablet, it's FINE it's a freaking tablet. It's not meant to multi task to the level that PC's do.
So what you're really saying is you refuse to take on functionality 3rd party programs give you.
Win7 has never had dual screen native support for backgrounds, taskbars etc. Therefore, as that is a function I need, I got UltraMon. Disregarding 3rd party fixes in windows is dumb, as that is almost the whole point of windows: open source and modifiable beyond anything Microsoft will ever do for you.
