[TheVerge]Windows 8.1 preview: many small tweaks make for a significant update - Page 2  

post #11 of 160
Thanks for posting this. I had high hopes for 8.1. After reading this article I once again find myself in the postiion of sticking with Windows 7 as there is no compelling reason to change.

Again, thanks.

The overwhelming sincerity of your post has moved me to tears.

Perhaps the folks that never liked in the first place don't want it back...

Like me.

I hope they make it optional.
Otherwise it will just be a useless button getting in the way and taking up space.

Please lets not make this another 100+ post thread about the start button/menu.

Agreed, still nothing to improve productivity and the start menu is just more metro garbage. Was planning on putting Windows 8 on my HTPC if they improved the start menu, but not now after seeing the preview.

They are sticking to their vision imo, not the other way round.

But you can't fix a broken vision, especially not from from a corporation that thinks what they think is what users want.

Arrogance... we need less of it! People have different preferences, and variety is the spice of life.

Right there with you. All of the hype leading up to now was looking like ti might actually be a usable interface. Now that a real review has been done, notsomuch.

You think its broken.

You are entitled to what your personal view of their vision is. I'm sure others entitled to theirs too.

Lest you be so arrogant as to shove your opinion down others throats.

People have different preferences after all.

All of the "hype" lead to exactly where we are now.

The leaked consumer preview showed us what was coming, the articles based on that preview showed us what was coming, MS never said they would replace the start menu. Some people fall for clickbait, some don't.

If you don't like the additions, fine. Doesn't matter. If you don't think it is usable. Fine, that's your opinion.

If however you conjure up imaginary things and expect them to happen, don't be disappointed when they don't happen.
