Re: How real people will use Windows 8 on the desktop
I have been testing it at work since it came out. Before that, the DP.
Trust me, it pretty much sucks on a desktop computer. The only reason I am learning it is due to the fact that I will have to support it through the consumer IT work I perform.
On a tablet, it is great. Not that I am a big fan of Metro, nor do I think it is better than iOS. It is not IMO.
But using it on a typical desktop computer while trying to actually get work done is extremely painful. And don't get me started on multi-monitors. They really need to sort that out yesterday...
If you are a Facebook or Twitter *****, this is the OS for you. For anyone that wants to get work done, run, don't walk...
